Windows 7 won't take new folder redirection from GPO
Posted on 2014-12-17
We have all Windows 7 Pro boxes with latest SP and patches.
We lost a server and that serve hosted our folder redirection.
After bringing up a new server and writing a new GPO, I notice that the computers are still referencing their old path for folder redirection. When I go to a user's desk and look at the properties for the My Docs and Pictures, etc, the reference is \\oldserver\path\files instead of the new path that is specified in the new GPO.
In the event logs, there are errors indicating that the new GPO was not applied.
Anyone have ideas on how to clear this up? Or a work around? I really need my users to have access to their files.
