Hi,

I have a small business server 2000 and what seems to be happening is that user folders are moving around by themselves.

One day i would have my user folder next day/ month etc it would appear as a sub folder of some one elses folder.

There is no patern for this and its no particular folder. I have scanned for viruses and found nothing and closed all ports on Firewall except mail ports and it stopped for a while but its started again

Really frustrating and i have no answer. Help would be very much apreciated

Thanks

Hi,
are they profile folders?  or just folders with data in them

in my experience, this is cause by someone clicking ad dragging without realizing they've moved the folder somewhere else.  
moving the mouse quickly etc..  happens all the time.  I've done it myself countless time..  I don't think I've ever seen a folder move by itself.

if its a cronic problem, change the permissions on the top level folder to prevent it from being moved.
