Windows 7 Thread, Disappearing Home drive folders after first login in Technical; Hello All,
I was wondering if anyone has had problems with home shares being deleted upon first login to Windows ...

We had something similar in that on the Win 7 machines the pupils were not being redirected to their home shares. In the end, we deleted the profiles (both Win 7 and XP) and allowed them to recreate - logging on to a Win 7 machine first.
This seems to have solved the problem in that I havent had the same pupil come back but every few days there are another couple to sort out.

Witch.. Thanks for your reply. Is that with roaming profiles? or just mapping a home drive?
mine are being deleted off the server, after redirecting correctly.

There is a big post on this here : -
Windows 7 is deleting users home directories
We have installed Win 7 on 10 machines in 1 of our labs and haven't had user areas deleted but it has renamed user areas to 'Documents' The fix I used was to give Administrator 'deny' on read permission of the desktop.ini file. Deleting the file also fixes the problem (but I wasn't too keen on doing that!)
Out of interest, are your user areas located on a server running 2008? We only have around 80 user areas on a server 2008 machine (creative and media diploma students) the rest are on a server 2003 R2 and these have had no issues in 2 weeks. For us, the link seems to be 2008.
Hope this helps.

Roaming profiles. Entirely on Server2008R2. I wonder what causes it?
