I need some help guys. I've just modified the Folder Redirection Policy on my server at work so the hiarcy resembles windows 7's user folder structure rather than XP. I did this to the book so I know its right. However, I'm still seeing that all the user accounts are still layed out as XP compatible folder hiracys. Is there somthing I need to do to update these accounts with the new policy?

have you checked the app log on your clients? it will show folder redirection errors. Also, as reccomended, do a gpupdate /force. Oh... and if you haven't enabled "wait for network at login" folder redirection sometimes takes two log offs to apply.
