Hi, I was configuring my Windows 2003 Server for remote profiles and was wondering what the difference between Profile path and Home folder was in the Profile tab of the user's properties.  Please explain what the difference between them is and their individual purposes.

Thanks,
Rajiv Makhijani

Thank you very much for this information... this makes it a whole lot clearer.  Also, by any chance, do you know how the "Users Shared Folders" on Small Business Server 2003 defers from the profile and home directory.

I'm not as familiar with SBS - but I would presume that this would be something like a limited group-share functionality - where many users could save/retrieve data from the same storage...
