Folder redirection

I've inherited a 2008 server with 20 or so group policies.

I wish to remove folder redirection from one XP user.

I went to the delegation tab, advanced button of the policy I wish NOT to affect the user and added the user account and "denied" all permissions.

I then rebooted the users machine, logged in and opened My Pictures.  The address still shows/indicates redirection.

Am I missing something here?

Try running "gpupdate /force" on the user's machine, to ensure his machine is correctly updating group policy.

You have to remove them from the policy or out of the ou the policy applies to.  Do a gpupdate /force and reboot.  Might want to make sure that in that policy it states to move files/folders back to original location is enabled.
