cannot update roaming profile due to inability to copy a file from desktop

I have a couple of machines that are having a problem updating their roaming profiles when the user logs off.

It syncronizes and then when it says saving your settings it reports that a certain file CAXT3XWW cannot be copied from documents and settings/users desktop folder to the server profile folder.  It says that the file cannot be found.  

Then a second message will say that the roaming profile cannot be updated.

I have tried searching for that file in both locations and I can't find it, on the other machine it is another strange name.  

If anyone can give me any insight into clearing this out I would appreciate it.  The network is fine and I have tried removing everything from the desktop and also deleting everything from the desktop folder in the profile folder on the server.

Thanks.,

Sky

I am so sorry I overlooked this response.

What I ended up doing to solve it was to log in to the client computer as administrator and delete the desktop folder from the users profile.  Then when I logged back on as the user the desktop folder was copied over and the problem was cleared up.

Best regards,

Sky
