My Romaing Profile is not showing mapped network drives or desktop background.
I copied the Roaming Profile to a network share using the System applet, but it appears to be working only partially

Any ideas?
Thanks

no.  I just mapped them manually from the local machine that has the original Roaming Profile

i am not sure if that will work or not.....i use folder redirection, but in ever case of raoming profiles i have seen, you still have to use a script to map the drives, set it as a logon script

Simply resetting the Profile path on your account in AD should copy the profile properly to the new location.

Yes, drive mappings are profile dependant.
