Advanced Folder Redirection not applying changes

We use offline files and they have been working fine when configured as Basic where all users are redirected to the same shared folder.  When changing to Advanced and having multiple locations for the shared folder based on users security group the offline files do not apply the changes and still redirect to the previous location.  I've updated the GPO and ran gpupdate on the users computer that we expect the folder redirection to change, but nothing changes.

Have you edited the policy to redirect folders to deffirent location and the same is not applied on client computer.Ensure that premission are set correctly on share and gpo is applied to cleint computer.Check the registry on client computer.

See this http://support.microsoft.com/kb/242557 for registry path to check.

Sandeshdubey, yes I edited the policy to a different location, the correct permissions are set on the new share and I ran gpupdate to the policy should be applied.  I checked the registry and it's pointing to the same location as before.

The security group that the user is in was previously a distribution list, but was changed to a security group so that it could be used for folder redirection.

You mean to say that policy is not applying correctly on client computer and the folder redirection policy is pointing to old server still the new location path in registry is not applied.

How many users are facing this issue couples or all.You can try loading the new profile and see how does it work.But if it is for bulk user then apprach will be different which I will let you know later.

You need to take backup of user profile delete UserSID from registry take backup of registry too delete the See my comments in this link:http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/bc885a2e-76f0-4927-8489-c32108e83d30/temp-profile-loaded-every-time-when-i-logged-in-to-a-domain-controller

The folder redirection started working for a user without making any other changes. Although, Windows Offline Files still points to the old location somehow the files are being redirected.
