    New user on machines isn't creating profile folder

    Hi,

    We have some problems with user profiles on PCs connected to our windows 7 domain. In the past, we would image a new machine for a particular site.

    Each site has a domain account for the students that sets permissions etc. The GPO is setup to prevent users accessing the local drives "C". So I would create a local user and manually copy the files to the PC.

    I've just done a completely new Windows 7 image. Now I've noticed that when I create a new student user on the PC locally, via control panel, the local profile isn't created. No folder in c:\users.

    The effect is that the students can logon, because its a domain logon, but they get a message saying that windows couldn't load the profile.

    I've tried manually adding the relevant folder into c:\users but this makes no difference.

    I'm sure this has been working previously,

    Why isn't the local profile being created?

    Thanks in advance for your help

    Martin

    So checking through the obvious: permissions on the user profile root folder?

    Yes, I looked at that. Admin has full control, everyone else has Read/Write.

    That's as should be I think.... its not been changed by me from the Windows install. And since I am creating users while logged on as Admin (local and Domain) I think it's right.
