I have a gpo to map drives. I need to update the server path for one of the drives. So when i edit the policy to change the Location to a different server\share i have the action to replace and Reconnect checked.  When i login as the user the old location is still mapped. I did a gpupdate /force and same thing I also disconnected the drive manually and when i reboot and login now the drive doesn't show up.  Is there a registry key i can delete to reapply this mapping. I checked permissions as the use can access the share if i manually map the drive.

One computer after rebooting about 4 to 6 times the drives showed up. The other computer i removed from the domain and rejoined and then they showed up as well. This is a pain to do.
