Windows 7 Clients not getting redirected home folders

I have a client that all of a sudden decided to upgrade all their clients to Windows 7 without talking with me.  They had redirected Home Folders via GP working on all their XP machines.  The College Kid on Spring Break came in and upgraded all the PCs to Windows 7.  Now when the user logs in they do not get the redirected Home Folders.  It was all working well on the XP machines.  When I logon as Administrator the same GP runs and I get the Home Folder redirected without issue.  I'm at a loss.  I've verified that the user has access to the redirected location.  Thoughts???

Have you checked the workstation system and app logs for clues?  Also check the Server logs to see as well ... perhaps there are some failures there that will shed some light.

Also, try rejoining the machines to the domain.

Found the solution...
The user has to be listed as the owner to the My Documents folder.  I had given them full control but that is not enough I guess.  Once I made this change the GPO worked.
