Windows 7 is deleting users home directories
I need help with a very strange problem! We have replaced 7 of our Admin machines over to new HP's running windows 7.
Friday afternoon 1 user reports all of their files on their home directory are gone. Could have been user error??
Monday morning another 4 staff have the same problem. Going through the backups we can see 2 users did not have any files when the Friday night backup was done. Meaning 2 users lost their data late Friday afternoon and 2 must have lost their data first thing Monday morning because there data was there for the Friday night backup.
We did not have time to the test image as much as I would have liked to but it was pretty plain image with only office 2007 installed all patches and Symantec endpoint.
We have found two issues but I canít see how they would delete home directories.
First one was drive mapping conflicting during the log on script because the H drive was used by a memory card reader. remapping the memory card reader and drive mapping worked fine.
Second one was home directories just displaying as "documents" in \\*file server*\*share*\ rather than the login name before, however if you opened the documents folder, it is showing as \\*file server*\*share*\*user* and same within command prompt. Not sure if this just how windows 7 works but obviously we would like to see the login in the share and not just "Documents" for everyone.
Any help would be appreciated! I need to replace 8 more of these machines ASAP so I can use the old admin machines for a new primary IT area.
