Reverse group policy for folder redirection

Reverse group policy for folder redirection

I created a group policy that will redirect my documents folders of the users on my company to a folder I created in a Windows 10 machine. I deleted the GPO without checking the box “Redirect the folder back to the local user profile location when the policy is removed”. Now the users can only access their files only if they log in to the specific machine where their folder was redirected. Is there any way to redirect back those folders to the users even though I deleted the policy? I tried to link a test OU to the earlier policy that I deleted to restore it and try to select “Redirect the folder back to the local user profile location when the policy is removed” checked “Move the contents of [folder name] to the new location” and set the Target folder location to “Redirect to the local user profile location but still no luck. I also tried creating a new policy and put at the scope some of the users that were having the issue and select “Redirect the folder back to the local user profile location when the policy is removed and set the Target folder location to “Redirect to the local user profile location and check “Move the contents of [folder name] to the new location” but still, the folders are present on the Windows 10 machine. Any idea how I can fix this?
