I tried to move my share folder in the C drive into D drive and I applied new gpo policy to point to the new location but still my users has the old location share so how can I solve this and when you access the clients it says that old location is unavailable.

Now my domain administrator account was part of the folder redirection GPO then I am unable to access my desktop it says" windows cannot access  \\machine\sharedfolder\username\desktop " so please help to get my desktop

first thing I'd try is gpupdate /force and than rebooting about 4 times to see if the GPO kicks in.

also triple and quadruple check for typos in pathing. and security issue and sharing properties.
