    cant access home folder for one user

    i have one user (principal!) who cant access his network home folder. i have finally got it to map (as well as other shares which can now be successfully accessed) but the home folder brings up the error

    H:\ refers to a location that is unavailable. etc etc

    if i disconnect the drive and remap it works, if i browse to it manually it works.

    i have checked the security permissions on the home folder and his account has full access.
    i have removed permission from the home folder and readded

    i am trying to move/rename the folder but something is stopping me

    EDIT
    renamed orignal folder, created new folder - FAILED
    dropped from domain added again - FAILED
    logged in as test users - FAILED
    checked machine groups - FAILED

    Logged on as me on his machine - FAILS
    Logged on as him on my machine - SUCCESS!!! so its the machine
    errrrr dunno where to proceed now lol other than reinstall, which i havent the time for really now as i dont have the drives for it at hand

    please help....its the head so i dont wanna lose my head

    Share permissions? (not just security permissions).

    Can you access the share via the IP rather than name? If so try this: How to re-initialize the offline files cache and database. This worked for us when we had this issue
