Folder Redirection GPO - Changing folder locations and Windows 7

So we updated our Server 2003 domain and schema and added a Server 2008 domain controller some time ago. Folder Redirection was done to the Server 2003 prior to this move. A new GPO was created to change the location of Redirected Folders to the new Server 2008 domain controller.  The clients are Windows 7 Ultimate, and many of the users have an issue where the group policy is applying correctly, but leaving the location of the old Redirected folder in the Sync Center, and cannot be removed in any way. So Sync Center shows error syncing with the old redirected location, even though the folders are empty, and in some users cases, no longer there.

Any ideas?

Remove the redirection option from the GPO. Re-specify it in another, separate GPO to the new location.
