Group policy "My Documents" redirection failed.
Posted on 2013-06-10
Windows 7 laptop on a Windows 2008 domain. We are in the process of updating folder redirection via a new GPO and OU. All users are currently in the 'users' OU with the old group policy for folder redirection. We are moving users to a new group policy by putting them in a different OU. This has worked well for many people so far.
One laptop has been a problem. I put the user in the new OU and it picked up the new group policy. However, the file location for My Documents is stuck at the old location. I have gpupdate /force several times and restarted it several times. It seems to just be stuck at the old location for My Documents even though other folders like Favorites and Desktop show the new location correctly.
My event log shows the following Warning ID 1085: 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 appreciate any thoughts on this. Thanks!
