I did something kinda stupid. I renamed the /documents and settings/"userprofile" folder of one of my users on my server 2003 machine. Now when I logon with that user, it just builds a new profile directory for them. I tried naming it back but no luck. How do I point it back to the correct folder? I need this working asap so ask questions if I'm not clear.
