Roaming Profile Error

I have a user who's trying to logon to his machine, but it's not loading his profile properly.

When I check the event viewer, I see the following Application Errors.

Source: Folder Redirection
Event ID: 111
Description: Unable to apply folder redirection policy, initialization failed

This is then followed by the following entry.

Source: Userenv
Event ID: 1085
Description: The Group Policy client-side extension Folder Redirection failed to execute.

I've tried removing the profile form the PC, rebooting the system, and logging in again, but this does not help.

What folders are you redirecting via policy?  Does the user have acces sto those folders?

Do you get the same error if he tries a different machine?

For the user we redirect their My Documents via Group Policy, to the home directory which is specified in their account profile.

Profile Path: \\machine-name\UserProfiles$\user
Home Folder (X:\ drive) \\machine-name\User$\user

When I browese to the profile path as the user, he has rights to access it.  When I view the U:\ drive, it is connected properly and he can access it.  However, if I go to Start > My Documents, the contents of the users redirected My Documents folder (U:\ Drive) is not there.

I have had the user login on multipl machines, and we get the same errors.

IRT Cuteadder: I have checked the folder premissions on these two directories, and the user has full access.

For th ehome folder, make sure the OWNER of the entire folder is either the specific user, or administrators.

On the local machine, the user may need full control of the c:\temp folder or whatever your environment variable is set to.
