    @Tom-Kirby - I hope you've had some joy recovering the data. Unless absolutely necessary, access to C:\ should be hidden, making it impossible to save data locally. This can be achieved using GPOs.

    It sounds to me as though a mapped drive has been setup, but it isn't overriding the default C:\Documents and Settings\ This would point to a permissions issue. Generally speaking users should be given full control to their own mapped My Documents.

    Why do it manually?

    It's not painful to setup for this to be done automatically. I did it a couple of years back and it is a godsend when swapping out computers and laptops, their My Docs is ready for them.

    Exactly, it adds a true roaming experience so their data is always available and managed centrally. If you need a point in the right direction, Folder Redirection is what you're looking for.

    We currently do this and it does make life a hell of a lot easier. Maybe there could be a tutorial set up if anyone knows the ins and outs of it.
