I currently have a problem with a user logging on to a network.
When the user logs on the following message appears:
"Windows cannot copy file \\SERVERNAME\profiles\USERNAME\Application Data\ to location C:\documents and settings\USERNAME\Application Data\ contact your network administrator
DETAIL - Access is denied
During this time a 30 second countdown appears
After you press OK you then get another message:
"Windows cannot load the profile and is logging you on with a temporary profile. Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you log off"
Again during this time a 30 second countdown appears.
I've only just been put in charge of this network as the previous person walked out on the company, so I've no idea what is going on.
I've checked all permissions for this user including the profiles directory on the server and the shared drives which the user maps to and all are ok.
I think this is a roaming profiles issue but I'm probably wrong.
Any help is much appreciated
