New user gpo not applying after user moved to new OU

Last Modified: 2016-02-13
We have folder redirection for users Desktop and Documents folders - working well.

When I move a user to a new OU they should get a new folder redirection gpo. However it is not working.

When we run gpresult /r on the workstation they're still getting the old gpo. Even after a gpupdate /force and a log off/on.

What am we missing.?
