I have migrated from a Windows 2003 SBS to a Windows 2008 R2 and copied all the data to the new server and for some reason the Windows 7 Redirection for My Documents isn't working.

Check the application event log on the client. Make sure the user has full control over the directory where documents are being redirected.

I have checked the even viewer on the client and get this error:

Windows failed to apply the Folder Redirection settings. Folder Redirection settings might have its own log file. Please click on the "More information" link.

I have reset and deleted all GPO's except for Default Domain and Default Domain Controllers. Any more ideas?
