    Aha that's done it but it's found 5 different desktop.ini files in 5 different subfolders under their home drive. Which one do I edit?

    Delete them all then refresh the folder (F5). "My Documents" should be gone. It will be recreated when you log back on as that user. You can then use FSRM to block that file.

    Well.. I. I didn't know you felt that way! LOL. Now install File Server Resource Manager in Server Manager and set it to block desktop.ini. Job done.

    Feeling bad for you @abillybob it's a horrid feeling when things go wrong. Hopefully one of our more experienced Edugeekers will spot this thread and look upon it with a fresh pair of eyes and spot a solution to your problem. I can see that the last thing you need now is advice on how you should have done things but genuine help at resolving your current issue. Not sure what part of the world you hail from but if you are in the Swindon area I use a chap based there who has come in a couple of times to sort out issues that are beyond my skill set.

    Check your view settings for hidden or system files.

    just the desktop.ini files, I then checked under our staff home drive and it had successfully renamed it back from My Documents to Suzanne but when she logs on it's not showing up under computer??

    Does the folder still exist on the server? I doubt it's gone just the folder redirection settings you've messed with.

    Are you able to browse to the UNC path? \\server\shd\staff\user for example. Not appearing in my computer would imply to me that its not been mapped correctly.
