Group Policy Client Side Extension Folder Redirection was unable to apply o e or more settings

When I run a regular gpupdate, it seems to run fine.

Updating Policy...

User Policy update has completed successfully.
Computer Policy update has completed successfully.

But when I run a gpupdate /force, I get this error:

Updating Policy...

User Policy update has completed successfully.

The following warnings were encountered during user policy processing:

The Group Policy Client Side Extension Folder Redirection was unable to apply one or more settings because the changes must be processed before system startup or user logon. The system will wait for Group Policy processing to finish completely before the next startup or logon for this user, and this may result in slow startup and boot performance.

Computer Policy update has completed successfully.

For more detailed information, review the event log or run GPRESULT /H GPReport
html from the command line to access information about Group Policy results.

Certain User policies are enabled that can only run during logon.
Certain Computer policies are enabled that can only run during startup.

OK to Restart?. (Y/N)

Rebooting doesn't seem to help.

When I run the GPRESULT /H GPReport.html and search for "failed", I show this in the html report:

Microsoft Disk Quota      Failed (no data)      6/16/2015 3:14:43 PM
Microsoft Disk Quota failed due to the error listed below.

The system cannot find the file specified.

Additional information may have been logged. Review the Policy Events tab in the console or the application event log for events between 6/16/2015 3:14:43 PM and 6/16/2015 3:14:43 PM.


Is that the GPO causing the issue? I don't show that in Group Policy for my domain.  But that appears to be under Computer Policy anyway?

I have Server 2008 R2 and just one 2012 R2 that's a DC.
Anything I should be checking for in Group Policy? Any diagnostic tools to help trace the cause of the issue?
