This error occurs when a user doesnt have sufficient Share and NTFS ACL permissions to create a subfolder in the redirected location.

Please follow these steps to setup the network location.

To make sure that only the user and the domain administrators have permissions to open a particular redirected folder, do the following:

1.  Select a central location in your environment where you would like to store Folder Redirection, and then share this folder. In this example, FLDREDIR is used.
2.  Set Share Permissions for the Everyone group to Full Control.
3.  Use the following settings for NTFS Permissions:
 
CREATOR OWNER - Full Control (Apply onto: Subfolders and Files Only)
System - Full Control (Apply onto: This Folder, Subfolders and Files)
Domain Admins - Full Control (Apply onto: This Folder, Subfolders and Files)
Everyone - Create Folder/Append Data (Apply onto: This Folder Only)
Everyone - List Folder/Read Data (Apply onto: This Folder Only)
Everyone - Read Attributes (Apply onto: This Folder Only)
Everyone - Traverse Folder/Execute File (Apply onto: This Folder Only)
 
4. Configure Folder Redirection Policy as outlined in Windows Help. Use a path similar to \\server\FLDREDIR\%username% to create a folder under the shared folder, FLDREDIR.

The information above has been taken from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/274443/

Hope this solves your problem.
