I'm new at GPOs and I was experimenting with folder redirection and decided to redirect my admin desktop to a network \\servername\users\%username% share. Unfortunately I input the name of the share incorrectly (\\servername\users) and it redirected to the root of the user folder, which means it added every user directory to my desktop. I also set the account as a roaming profile which did go to the correct path \\servername\users\admin. I changed the account back to local profile and I have removed the admin account from the redirection GPO, but the link to the user folders is still there. I have even tried redirecting back to the same location and choose leave folder where they are when I removed policy, still no good. I know I must be missing something. It's very irratating to say the least.
It seems that I am only locked into the desktop on the 2 systems I originally logged onto. I logged onto a different system with my admin account and it did not redirect my desktop. But the 2 systems I had logged onto originally still have the redirected desktop and are linked to the user directories.
