Desktop will not redirect

Hey guys,

I set this up a little different than most.  I created a Group Policy and in the Policy Properties, I only had it apply to one Global Security Group.  I now just add users that I want to have use Folder Redirect to the Global Security Group.

Here's my problem, if it's not obvious from the title, the Desktop will not redirect.  MyDocs and everything else works fine, but the Desktop will not work.

Here is how I did it all:

Created a New GPO called, "Redirect"
Created a GSG called, "Redirected"
edited Redirect
< User Configuration
< Windows Settings
< Folder Redirection

Application Data:
Basic - Redirect everyone's folder to the same location:
\\Servername\RedirectFolder\MassApps
Create a folder to each user under the root.

Desktop:
Basic - Redirect everyone's folder to the same location:
\\Servername\RedirectFolder\MassDesk
Create a folder to each user under the root

My Documents
Basic - Redirect everyone's folder to the same location:
\\Servername\RedirectFolder\MassDocs
Create a folder to each user under the root.

Start Menu:
Basic - Redirect everyone's folder to the same location:
Redirect to the local userprofile location

Is there something I'm missing?

When a user logs onto a workstation,  check the event viewer, there should be a error as to why it failed.

Does the user have the right share and folder permissions to create this folder?
