    For some strange reason, all of a sudden 1 of uor mandatory profiles isn't syncing correctly, but all the others are. All the mandatory profiles' folders are redirected to a read-only directory on the server (excluding their documents, which is a seperate share on the server). When this user logs in, their documents is synced correctly, but their mandatory folders (e.g. Desktop) aren't. The user is in an organizational unit, and the redirected folders are applied via group policy, in the OU scope (and set on 'Domain Users', which the user is a member of) - also, the other GPO settings are applied, it's just the redirected folders. I've tried deleting the account, and recreating it, but that brung no lucky. Anybody has any ideas?

    I tried logging in on another workstation (which is under identical group policy and user profile settings), and it worked fine. Maybe the problem is locally on the workstation?
