Apply once and do not reapply? how does it work?

Im using a user group policy to deploy files to %appdata%\roaming\Microsoft\word\startup
a few days a year we update this files and they get deployed to every worksation.

On the worktations we get lots of warnings in eventlog saying the file cant be updated because the file is in use. I would like to get rid of this errors.

If I change to Apply once and do not reapply on all files, will it last as long as the source files are the same as destination. Or will it reapply to all workstation if i update the source with a new file?

I would be gratefull for a quick answser
