"My Documents" redirection

Environment:
About 10 servers, 2 domain controllers (both Windows Server 2008)
About 70 workstations, mixture of Windows 7 and Windows XP

Users have their "My Documents" folder redirected to a share folder on a server.  I am migrating those directories to a new server.  I cannot find where the definition is to change where the profiles look for that folder.

I have changed their Home Directory in Active Directory.  I have changed the only GPO I can find that references it.

Where else should look for where this might be assigned?

Hello,

They might be redirected via a logon script, check this Technet article and confirm if there are any logon scripts for the users

Sigh.  Found a typo in my redirection GPO.

Also, I had to disable the setting to copy all data over from the old location (which I had already disabled).

It works perfectly now.

Thanks for the suggestions.
