my docs redirect

Posted on 2011-03-07

Created a group policy for my docs redirect.  Made a test users folder and put 5 of the 50 users in it.  Works fine.  I need to take 1 of the users out and put them back in the users folder where they were originally.  This should take away the my docs redirect from their user name correct?  I can't seem to tell it to stop doing redirect on this user.  It's like it's permanent.  They are not in the test OU anymore,  and I even unchecked link enabled and link enforced for the policy on everyone and it sitll keeps using the policy when I put the user back.  I must be missing one area to stop this policy from working.  I have logged them off and done a gpupdate /force.

Then tick local and make sure there is nothing set, it will default back to normal.

Nope.  All of the users, even the ones in the test OU show local path checked with nothing showing to the right of it.

must of been a timing thing, now it works.  One more question.  So I don't lose any information from the server and the user, should I do a sync before I take the users I need and put them back to their original location?  If I don't do a sync I would think that the server might have some files that the user does not have on their computer.  We are using offline files.  This is why I am asking.  When you sync it puts the my docs files on the  server and in a folder called offline files.  Will these offline files be put back into C:\documents and settings\"username"\mydocuments ?

Do you think this group policy only stopped working when I took them out of the test ou or when I unchecked link enabled,  enforced?
