On my win2000 server computer I have multiple Sysvol directories in places that I should not have. I have one in the winnt directory (where it is supposed to be) and one on my desktop. It does not seem like the one on the desktop is a shortcut because when I try to erase it, it erases everything except for the "do not remove..." folder in the other sysvol folder (I get a sharing violation for the "do not remove" folder). Other strange thing, I restored the sysvol from backup... then everything came back in order. Then I tried to empty my recycle bin witch the sysvol folder from the desktop is in, and I get the sharing violation message again and everything in the sysvol folder in winnt is empty again and I have to restore from backup????
