    Cannot Access My Documents

    Hi All,

    I have just created a new default profile for the network and it seems to be working perfectly apart from one thing. When staff log in, they are unable to access my documents and they have a message saying This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer.

    Is there anything that I am missing that's obvious!?

    Thanks

    James

    Do you have "Prevent access to drives from My Computer" on?

    If so try opening the folder by clicking normally through explorer, (not browsing to it through a program).

    To quote MS:

    Users report the following error: “This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator.”

    This error message occurs because User Restrictions is configured to block access to the C: drive and the user’s profile is stored on the C: drive. The error appears when Windows Explorer attempts to access special folders (such as My Documents and My Music) that are located on that drive. To resolve this problem, remove the Windows Explorer shortcut from the Start menu and replace it with a shortcut to My Computer.

    It's not mandatory profiles. It's roaming. I think the problem is a combination of what you are both saying.

    The staff do not have access to the c drive and I need to redirect it to the My Documents to their folder.

    Do I need to redirect them all to the same location and use \\servername\%username%$

    Thanks guys!

    Having looked back through the folder redirection policy, I had stupidly set it to redirect to the local profile!! What a helmet!!
