Will changes to Windows Server 2008 Group Policy affect folder redirection permissions?

Windows Server 2008 AD was setup to have group policy setup folder redirection.  Originally the policy was applied at the default domain level and users logged into to create their redirected folders.  That policy was disabled and the same policy was created at more specific OU levels for 2 OUs.  When users now login there appears to be some permission issues going on and the redirected folder locations are not available.  What recommended steps can I take to resolve?

Thanks.

I would first start by verifying that the shared path is correct.  Then after that browse to the shared folder and double check to make sure the users accessing the folder have the proper permissions.

1) Verify that the "Domain Users" group (or an equivalent one)  have READ and CHANGE sharing permissions to the root of your profile redirection repository.
2) Verify that "Domain Users" group (or an equivalent one) have "Create Folders/Append Data" and "Create Files / Write Data" permissions.
3) Delete any local profiles created for your test user on a test PC
4) Reboot the test PC to ensure that the changes stick
5) Log in as your test user and enjoy.

Thanks to both of you.  It did end up being a permissions issue.
