Windows 2000 Server: Where are roving profiles stored?

Quick Question, (its been a while)

where can I find a roving profile on the W2000 server?

I need to find files that a past employee saved on the desktop, and the workstation has been re-formated.

Thanks

I guesss you mean "roaming profile". These "home folders" are stored in a shared directory on the server. From a command line, you can type:   net share

This will show you all shares on the server including hiddne shares.

Actually, know I remember, I needed to go to AD users and check out the old users profile, it lists the profile location there.

Thanks guys.

Another easy way from the server would be to right-click that user's account in Active Directory, hit Properties, look to the Profile tab, and then examine the Profile Path field.  Browse there on the specified server to find your files.
