    Redirected Folders are hidden on creation in Home Folders

    I'm after a litle help with a strange issue...

    Windows server 2008r2
    Windows 7 Professional

    Both are new, clean installs. The Home folder has been setup using the following guide...
    Best Practice: Roaming Profiles and Folder Redirection (a.k.a. User State Virtualization)

    Now, the issue is, when a user logs in for the first time the redirected folders (Desktop, Documents, Music, etc...) don't appear in the users home folder...at first glance (see attachment 1). If i 'show hidden files' the folders are there (attachment 2).

    Redirection is working, i can save a file on the desktop and it does appear in the hidden desktop folder. Even stranger is, the folder a create on the desktop isn't hidden.

    I can right click on the folders and untick the 'Hidden Attribute' but i don't fancy doing it everytime i create a home folder!

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Is this an isolated incident to one user, or is affected on all users, Because that is odd and sneaky to hide stuff like that.

    I could be inheriting it from the top level folder, does it have read only set?
