GPO error

I setup a GPO to re-direct folders on one network and it worked OK.  
I set it up on another network but made an error by entering the location on the target computer (D:\redirected Folders) rather than (\\servername\sharename).  I corrected it but all the affected computers still keep creating a a folder on their D: Drives called redirected folders containing all the other user folders.  I keep deleting these folders but they keep coming back.  In desparation, I deleted the GPO and recreated it but nothing has changed.  
How can I correct my mistake?

Create a new GPO with the re-direction.

Check on the workstations with "GPRESULT /V" if they get applied the old and/or the new GPO.

Maybe replication has failed, so you might want to use "GPUPDATE /FORCE" to get the local GPO's up to date.
