    I don't use mandatory profiles but surely its just read access on both share + ntfs (and list folder contents etc) and they don't need to be able to write anything to the server. Plus for admins full control so they can copy stuff up for shortcuts etc

    To keep things simple, would it be better to set the share to Everyone: Full Control and then change the permissions on just the folder(s)?

    ok to try and sort the problem out, done has above

    On the main folder that stores the profiles

    I set the share permssion to everyone full control

    Then ok the ntfs permissions, i have the following said full control: Everyone, CREATOR OWNER, Authenticated Users, Administrators, and even the actual user name I am testing it with

    Still no luck, this is really stressing me out, this use to work!

    This is shared by DFS, the above method is even not using the DFS link, the link with the server name

    so link is \\server-7\profiles$\student



    edit: even now tried adding the username Im testing with on the share permissions has well has ntfs one has well

    How did you copy the profile to the server? did you just copy the files from the c: drive or did you go into system properties then move it via the user profile setting and then copy to location?

    Have the NTFS permissions been pushed down and also did you set the permission to use when copying up to the server? (i know this may sound stupid but it has tripped me up a couple of times)
