User got a new machine. all files live on the server because of redirection.

Tried to run gpupdate / force, and got an error (below).

GPO gives me the following in the event viewer:

Failed to apply policy and redirect folder "Documents" to "\\server01\UserShares\doris\Documents".
 Redirection options=0x80001211.
 The following error occurred: "Can not create folder "\\server01\UserShares\doris\Documents"".
 Error details: "This security ID may not be assigned as the owner of this object.".

User has full privs to the files, and \\server01\usershares\doris\documents exists.... it has all her stuff.

How do I fix this?
