Home folder & Folder Redirect

I created a home folder \\nwgsdc\homefolder\%username% on the users profile tab.
I redirected the Desktop and Documents folder,everything worked correctly. I noticed that I had made a mistake and typed in F0lder instead of Folder, once I renamed it nothing worked and I redid everything. This time I just named the home folder (home)
\\nwgsdc\home\%username%
I did the same folder redirection as I had done before.
I was doing this with 2 computers WS1 and WS2
when I did a gpupdate /force on ws1 everything worked correclty, but on Ws2 I keep getting this message.
erroras you can see it is still pointing to the nwgsdc\homefolder\ppineiro (name of the user).
I tried removing the computer from the GPO and putting it back in and still no joy.
when I log into the Srv and go to the folder of the user (ppineiro) I can see both the desktop and document that have been redirected correctly.
How do I fix this problem?

When you go and rename folders out from under folder redirection, you can end up in an inconsistent state to the point that there is no simple recovery,

The easiest way forward now is to log into the workstation that isn't working as an administrator and delete the local profile of any account exhibiting the problem. Obviously this can result in some data loss on the local machine for that user, but usually nothing cataclysmic. Have backups.

I know I can do that, hoping not to have to do that.
Guess was hoping for magic fix.
Do have backups.
Thanks for confirming ..
