Folder redirection not working on Windows 7

Last Modified: 2015-03-19
I have a Windows 2008 Domain controller also using it as a file server. I have 5 Windows 7 computer joined to the domain and folder redirection is working fine on all workstations.

I had to un-join one computer because I got the "trust relationship broken" message.

Now when I join the computer again everything works except for folder redirection. I have a policy that does both the drive mapping and folder redirection. The drive mapping works so I know the GPO is applying.

But I have this error in the event logs and don't know what to try. I have found a number of similar issue by searching on Google but so far nothing has worked. Please help!

Failed to apply policy and redirect folder "Pictures" to "\\server\RedirectedFolders\time01\My Documents\My Pictures".
 Redirection options=0x9211.
 The following error occurred: "Can not create folder "\\server\RedirectedFolders\time01\My Documents\My Pictures"".
 Error details: "Access is denied.
