folder redirection not updating to new server via GP

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I just had a server crash and I replaced it with a new 2008 windows server. I restored the backups of the my documents redirected files and then changed the group policy to point to the new server and path. Some users seem to be working. I know of one user in particular that is not working. I did a gpupdate /force and I reinitialized the offline files but it still points to the old server path.

How do I force this to update?

Also, it used to folder redirect to a another server before I worked here. It still tries to sync to that folder. How do I remove that from all the computers in this office so that it doesn't try to sync to an old server that doesn't exist anymore?
