Windows 7 Home Folders
We're having a bit of a problem with our new Windows 7 suite. For some reason they are not mapping the home drive correctly.
We map their home drive in the User Accounts AD to N: \\<server>\home$\<year>\%username%
For some reason the N: drive is mapping to \\<server>\home$ instead. The same user account maps fine on the Win XP machines.
Has anyone come accross this before or can point me in the right direction for probable answers?

[SOLVED] (I think). Early reports suggest a NTFS permissions problem. Turns out I needed to give 'Everyone' Read+Execute permissions on the two folders above their home folder. Win-XP never complained so I suppose it's some extra strong security in Win7 that was getting upset. Oh-hum!
