Windows 7 Folder Redirection Group Policy

Last Modified: 2012-09-08
I have configured a GPO to redirect our users desktop, my documents, favorites and pictures. The folder redirect group policy works when a NEW user logs into a workstation but will not apply to an existing user. If I delete an existing users local profile then have them log in, the group policy will apply correctly and the folders redirect.

Is there any way to get Folder Redirection working without deleting the users local profile?
