Hmm, I handled similar case before and the issue was user didn't logoff and log on back. So in order to isolate your issue, please ensure:

Users must log off and log back on to apply the folder redirection change to their computers. This ensures that all redirected folders are transferred to the Destination Server. Optionally, someone with administrator credentials on the client computers can force a Group Policy update.

To force a Group Policy update on a client computer
1.Log on the client computer as an administrator.

2.Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.

3.At the command prompt, type gpupdate /force, and then press ENTER.

4.The process may require you to log off and log on again to finish. Click Yes to confirm.

What's the result?

Thank you!

To answer your question about the share: if you used a UNC path to file share -- no. If you have mapped drive to a letter, remap to the share.

Sorry, that's not the way EE works. We're willing to help, but the content needs to stay in the system for other users and experts.

About your problem: verify that you have the correct UNC path in the GPO, and that the GPO properly scoped for the users in question. You also need to follow withtu's directions on forcing a GPO re-sync, if you haven't already.
