    I don't believe I'm having the same issue as you guys are having, but I'm having an interesting one none the less. I have several workstations that have been recently replaced where users are set up with folder redirection. Now on the new workstations, their Desktop and My Documents will not load unless I give them local admin privilages. I would like to avoid giving local admin rights, but at the same time these user needs access to their folder until I can figure out what is causing this. The workstations are running XP SP3. Does anyone have any idea what may be causing this?

    I think I mentioned elsewhere that we "got round" this problem by creating the My Docs etc inside the mandatory profile that we use.

    Thanks for the reply, I would try that, but we're not using mandatory profiles. All users are set up with local profiles, and several have folder redirection enabled to allow them access to their documents when using different workstations on the network. Their local profile has My Documents, it's just empty.

    I can confirm on all networks I support, home directories are setup as:

    Code:
    \\SERVERNAME\USERNAME$
    This works absolutely fine with XP SP2 and XP SP3.

    In the end I just added an extra line to the logon scripts that checked for My Documents and if not already there created the folder... seemed to play a bit happier after that for me anyway
