So I am trying to turn off redircted folders. I went into group policy and disabled the redirected folders policy for Desktop and My Documents. I made sure it was set to move files back to local profile when policy is removed. I rebooted the server, ran gpupdate, and rebooted the client computers. The folders on the client computers are still pointing to server. I made sure the policy is enabled and enforced and applies to the Group object where I have all the user accounts in active directory

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

Name: Personal
Type: REG_EXPAND_SZ
Data: %USERPROFILE%\My Documents

You could script this in your login script to reset the 'Personal' registry to "%useprofile%\My documents" if they're not resetting automatically...

Nevermind. I changed the policy to specifically redirect to local computer and that worked
