redirect mydocuments

I did a test redirection of mydocuments and applied it to 1 OU that had 1 user in it.  seemed to work fine.  i deleted the group policy and the documents are still being redirected.  what is going to happen?   i was hoping that the documents would just appear in his regular mydocuments folder but there isnt one in the documents and settings.   any ideas?
everything is still redirected

In the Group Policy under the Document redirect properties you need to choose "Redirect the folder back to the local userprofile location when the policy is removed."  See attached jpg.

Group policy has a habit of not removing itself from users even though you have deleted the GP itself. It seems to stay in the profile.

Move the user from the OU and into a new ou then log onto the system again. This should clear the redirection.

You can then move them back again as the settings will be in there profile.

This is a major issue if you have a lot of users but for a test enviro its more of a bugbear.
