Change in redirection location problems.

Recently I began the undertaking of moving the contents on one server to another. I've copied the profile and redirection data from one location to another. Now after copying all the data over I went into our GPO and change the redirection location for the desktop, documents, and app data. The problem is that the users still get redirected to the old location. We've spent a lot of time troubleshooting the issue and in the end found a registry key change that would fix the issue for a user once they had logged in, had the change applied, then logged out. The problem is this isn't the best option to fix a network with many users. This seems to be a typical problem for people that I've seem after looking around the internet but I never found an answer or fix.

Double check the changes you've and make sure they have propagated.  Do you have GPMC with which you can analyze the application of the GPOs?
An option might be to negate the Folder redirection and get the folders to be part of the Roaming profile again. Then Apply the GPO with a new location.  Alternatively, if you have win2k3 R2 servers, you can setup DFS and use a domain based location for the redirected folders.

The problem was that in the properties of your redirection policy there is a checkbox saying to copy files from old location (or something in that nature). This was checked so it was looking for the old location. Unchecking it fixed the issue.
