Folder Redirection works for some but not others after changing location.

tfcii used Ask the Experts™
I have changed Folder Redirection from one Server to another.  It works for some but not others where the My Documents folder still is the old location.  I cannot change the properties of the folder itself  because of Group policy.  How can I correct this?

Have you applied a GPUPDATE /Force on the machines with the problem?

I have tried the GPUPDATE as well as I found a post that had some registry setting changes  
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders\Personal but neither worked

To correct the issue you have to change the personal and My Pictures keys located under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders  then reboot the pc.
