Folder Redirection slow at Remote offices (Site-to-Site VPN)

Hello all, So heres the run-down. Recently I configured Roaming Profiles and Folder Redirection. The majority of our users are running Windows 7. The issue I am having is with Folder Redirection (FR) at our remote office's. These sites connect back to our main HQ with a pair of Sonicwalls connected with a Site-to-Site VPN tunnel. FR works without issue at our main campus connected via Fiber E-Line. Only these sites have issues. Such as, slow login, slow loading of apps, and slow access to files. When they are not using FR, access to files on the very same file server open quickly and logins are smooth. I used the bellow guides to configure this and don't believe I missed anything. Can anyone offer any insight as to why this might be happening? And any possible solutions to this problem. This has pretty much slowed these users down to a crawl so I need to find a solution fast!

Also attached are my GPO settings exported to HTML for your to peruse.
