A file being specified in GPP is not being copied to destination.

I am creating a gpp to update a file:

Source: \\server1\share\app\update.ini
destination: \\server1\userprofiles\%username%\app\update.ini

The user account being used to login to server1 has r/w permission to \\server1\userprofiles\%username%\app.  

I do not see the file being copied to the destination.  

The policy is linked to the OU that contains server1.  I login to server1 using an account part of the group being specified in security filtering.  

Please advise where I should look at.

I assume this is a user policy? Did you enable looback processing?

Yes.  The user group policy loopback processing mode is already enabled.
Ok, then use gpmc and run a resulting set of policies for this user on server1 to verify it gets applied.

You could also check the Group Policy Events in Event Viewer under Applications and Services Logs\Microsoft\Windows\Group Policy\Operational

What OS is the server running?

rsop shows the user group policy is on server1.  

Everything looks good except the file is not seen in destination.  

I use UPDATE under user configuration>preferences>windows settings>files trying to copy just one ini from a network share to a location in the users' roaming profile:

\\server1\userprofiles\%username%\appdata\roaming\app\update.ini ---> destination.  

I have also tried: %appdata%\app\update.ini but still not success.
