Documents are missing after logon

Hi,

An user on our network is claiming his documents are dissapearing from his My Documents folder that is networked to the U: drive on our server upon loging in and out. Has anyone had this dilemma. Offline folder sync has been turned off and I noticed when I go to the properties for the folder there is a tab to restore previous versions, as if the folder is copying itself. I did not see an option or setting to control this though. Any information would be helpful

Restore previous version is possible if you have shadow copies turne on (in properties of disk drive). You can set the 'snapshot' inteval. In your case just go in 'previous versions' and choose his folders that you want to restore. You can either resore them to original place, or you can copy them to another folder.

If you want to know shadow copies beter - http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/techinfo/overview/scr.mspx

Ok I think we are on the right path. The problem according to the user is that it is automatically restoring these shadow copies. Has anyone had this problem and how is this occuring?

Turn ON offline folders so it will cache it on local drive. Than you can investigate, what is actualy synchornizing and what is going on. Next you can ser auditing for access on that folder (you must do that on the server)
