I set a desktop wallpaper GPO and it appeared to be working correctly.  I then overwrote the JPG that's stored on the server with another JPG with the same name but it wouldn't change on the client.  I ran a gpupdate /force and still to no avail.  It wasn't until I add the new JPG under a different name that it updated, but only after a restart of the client.

Is there a way to have the clients update even if the file names were the same?  Why didn't it change the JPG when overwriting the file?
