Displayed Title "My Documents" is stored internally as 'Documents'
When these redirected folders where setup did you give the users exclusive permissions or did you also give domain administrators permissions on these folders. This depends upon your companies policy.  If you just gave employees exclusive access (the same permissions that they have on a non-redirected folder) then you have to give the domain administrators group permissions

first you need to get a groups members
$adgroups="Marketing","Sales","Customer Support', "Production"
foreach ($group in $adgroups){
$users = get-adgroupmember  -Identity  $group
and so forth
$colItems = (Get-ChildItem $path -recurse | Measure-Object -property length -sum)
"{0:N2}" -f ($colItems.sum / 1MB) + " MB"
