I'm trying to map a drive through group policy and create a folder for users profiles. I'm using the below but the drive isn't being mapped. If I remove the %username% the drive gets mapped.

\\SERVERNAME\UserProfiles\%username%

The user I'm testing it with is an administrator and has full control permissions to the 'UserProfiles' folder.
gpresult is showing it is being pulled through.
It's using a drive letter not being used anywhere else.
It has worked in the past.
Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard

Any ideas why this could be happening?
