Mapped Drive Change Group Policy

Hello, we are moving our mapped drives to a new server using GPO. I created the new Gpo and linked it to the OU in question, i added the drives as 'update' however on the PC it did not reflect the change, did i do something wrong?

I recommend you use Replace rather than Update. If the preferences in your new policy don't translate over where the client can understand it's new, the old preferences will remain in place. Replace ensures that the old drive map is deleted and the new one is created. You can read about some of the differences between the types of mapped drive GPOs here. https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/ie/en-US/ae1fd71e-9bb5-4460-bd5e-a0a4b8a0ca7d/best-practice-way-to-update-a-drive-mapping-via-group-policy-preferences?forum=winserverGP
