SBS 2008 Folder Rediction Policy not applied

I have setup folder redirection on a SBS 2008 server which worked fine for a couple of years. Now the redirection group policy no longer being applied to all work stations.
I have manually checked the security settings on the folder and check the group policy.
When running gpresult on the work station it shows that the
SBS Folder redirection Policy "not applied"
Filtering: denied (Security)
Can anybody tell what this means and what filtering policy applies to this.

Check the scope of the policy to make sure it isnt scoped to a group vs "Authenticated Users". I restrict redirection to certain groups usually. Has that changed for you lately?
This is a user policy, so what the filtering error is telling you is that the user trying to utilize the policy doesnt have permissions set to read it.
