If the directory was created before, you may need to set ownership recursively (sometimes even though it 'appears' the user has rights, a few files/directories get locked out.  The user must have both ownership and permissions to the directories for folder redirection to work.
Right-click on the user's folder and select Properties...
Select the Security Tab...
Click Advanced...
Click on the owner Tab...
Change the owner to the user that should be having rights

Again, right-click on the user's folder and select Properties...
Select the Security Tab...
Click Advanced...
On the Permissions Tab, click Change Permissions...
HIghlight the user's Permission and Click the Replace all child object permissions checkbox.

Problem is that when i do that the user gains access but the administrator looses access. The Administrator would need access in order for backups to work. is there another option
As long as the administrator has full access (even just read access) they should be able to get to the folders to perform a backup.  The ownership will only affect the folder redirection.  You can still give rights to read/write to the directory for everyone else.

In that case in the scenario above, follow the second half of the process also for the administrator to have access to the folders.
