Roaming profile not being copied back to server

I have some laptops using roaming profiles, this particular laptop will only download the profiles from the server but will not copy them back to the server at logoff, I have quaduple checked the permissions on the folder i have removed unncecessary items from startup with msconfig, and i have also verified that the server has adequate storage space. right now i am stumped. I realize that this may have started since i istalled thunderbird on that computer but i was thinking that that shouldnt be an issue since i have thunderbird running on quite a few other hosts any help provided would be helpful.

I found out what the problem was the time time on the local system was set to an older date so the more recent version of the profile (which was on the server) kept being downloaded back to the client
