windows 2003 r2 server, explorer window displaying wrong folder names
Posted on 2009-12-17
I have a file server that holds user mydocuments with the name scheme username.mydocs. i have 40+ user mydocuments in a folder on the server. all of the users My documents are redirected to the server thru group policy
Example begining set up years ago on XP Pro OS
Now after the implementation of window vista or windows7 OS on serveral computers at the office, some of the names displayed on the server have changed and are incorrect.
Example now as displayed in windows explorer on the server
As shown in the example above windows explorer on the server is displaying the incorrect folder name. If I go to the Rochester users folder in dos and display the dir tree it shows the correct file names. If i go into any of the incorrect folder names above it changes the incorrect name to the correct folder tree.
Example when first Amy.mydoc is clicked on
Example when second Amy.mydocs is click on
Why is the displayed folder name changed on the server? what can be done to stop it from happening?
