i am using Server 2003 with XP PRo clients.

Whne my new users log on the Desktop the folders redirection is not working. i have set it to basic in the GPO for both my documents and from the desktop and as I say it works for my existing users. I have tried gpupdate /force three times  but nothing changes. I have also rin dcdiag, as I have had a problem in the past with a corrupt DNS registry entry, but there are no faults. Any ideas?

    How are the shares for the new users being created, manually or by folder redirection? Did existing users folders exist in their current location before folder redirection was turned on? Have you tried running the the Group Policy Modeling Wizard in the GPMC on a new user?
