Assigning Home Folder to Domain User

Hello Everyone,

I created a network share \\server\management. From here I set a users profile home folder to connect to H:\ to \\server\management\username. The user has full permissions to there directory (read, write, modify, delete) and the Administrator is the owner. I can do everything I am supposed to be able to accept for one annoying thing. For some reason when I logon as the user and open my computer click the H:\ I see the users files and also see a WINDOWS folder which contains an empty SYSTEM folder.

Why is this folder being created, can I stop this from happening? I have done this many times, but not sure why it is happening to me this time.

Thanks,
Brent

If you delete the folder, does it come back? Is it only for this particular user or all - is it in the user's H:\ or in the H:\ management root? Can you try creating a new test H:\ dir for that user, remapping them and see if the Windows\System gets created?

It is for all users who i assigned this too. Each users is assigned the home directory like this

Connect
H: to \\server\management\%username%

The WINDOWS\SYSTEM folders popup in the root of the username as such:

H:\WINDOWS\System

They are empty folders, but if I delete the WINDOWS folder or the System folder they just come back at next logon.
