We migrated from Windows SBS 2003 R2 to Windows Server 2012 R2 recently.
For some reason , Folder Redirection became enforced.

We noticed some users especially the laptop users had Folder Redirection kicked in. Although removed via the Group Policy wizard, it still persist.

For one user , we reset laptop to factory default but then rejoined the domain . The user does not have redirection shown anymore

FOr another user, we tried removing the laptop from domain  then adding it back again but the folder redirection still kicks in for that user. We  remove the user account from under  Manage User Account  on the machine. And added the user again to be able to logon to the machine. Same issue. Folder redirection kicks in again

The thing is this only happens on certain machines. What is the easiest way to solve this Folder Redirection issue?

There is a setting on the folder redirection policy to redirect to the local profile." That is how you instruct machines to stop using a server folder. Otherwise persistence still kicks in. Removing the GPO is not enough.
