Folder Redirection fails, My Document not accessible

I had to  reinstall my SBS 2003 premium box. It serves as DNS, DHCP, Exchange etc. I have partition C and E.
I restored the users redirected folders and all shared folders to partition E. I redirected clients document to a shared folder (USERS). But I copied the former users documents to this folder hoping that after configuring redirection, users will get their stuffs back in my document.The Shared folders are mapped to the clients PC. They can access shared folders and all other network resources. But I can not access my document. it displays the following error:
"The network folder, \\servername\Users\username\My Document, That contains My Documents is not available"
Please, I need an urgent help on this.

Thanks

Simple question but have you checked the share is valid and has the correct security access allocated to it?

As ste206 said check the security on the folder.
Make sure that you give the user full access to his folder and click the advanced button and tick the replace permission entries on all child objects with entries shown here that apply to child objects check box and click ok .

To check this has worked by trying to access this folder from the pc that will be having the redirect \\servername\Users\username\My Documents.

And you should have full access to the folder..

I got the problem. The bkf files inherit  permissions from the drives from which i restored the files. I restored the files again using advanced option and unchecked preserve permission in the back up utility. after the restore, everythings works fine

Thanks for your support
