Previously on server 2003 and migrated to server 2008 R2.   All clients on xp machines with folder redirection (my documents) to user's home directory on d:/data/username (//servername/data/%username%.  No problems with my xp machines/users.  One user just moved to win7 pro and the home directory on the server changed to d:/data/my documents.

Folder redirection - documents enabled using GPO....  

target tab:
   settings -- basic redirect everyone's folder to the same location
   target -- redirect to the user's home directory

settings tab:
    checked off -- also apply redirect .... to 2000, 2003 windows xp.

I am not moving anyone else until I know where we went wrong
