Alright, if nothing has changed then something has broken.
Can you please run RSOP from server & see what is desired behavior?
I would suggest that you enable this policy on Domain level, it is always good practice:

Computer Configuration | Policies | Administrative Templates | System | Logon Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon policy

Also, are you the only admin or someone else has rights to do something? Maybe, someone made some changes?

The Terminal server is not the domain controller where group policy is set, do you want me to change the settings in the domain controller or the terminal server

The GPO is always on DC, just put TS in OU & apply the GPO to it.

Did you check the settings on RDP connection? In local resources?

I have checked all the settings on the TS as far as connections go and as best I can tell they are all pointing to bringing these local resources to the TS. However even when I check the box on login to brin g the printers and drives it doesn't. I am not sure what else could be the problem

Then the only problem is that you have checked on TS server itself to disallow them, if as u say no GPO is restricting them.

Go in Admin tools on TS Server then the first folder for RDS & remote desktop configuration   On the right side u will see the server, right click it & go to properties & then u can see it.

Can you also please see that you Block inheritance on the OU where you have put the TS, just to be sure that nothing from top is getting pushed.
