Redirected folders log on error

A user when logging on this morning is unable to access desktop and gets error saying they don't have permissions. The strange thing is the error message is trying to look at the local PC name, rather than the server name where the files are stored?

The error message

[Window Title]
Network Error

[Main Instruction]
Windows cannot access \\WS0004\RedirectedFolders\user\Desktop

Check the spelling of the name. Otherwise, there might be a problem with your network. To try to identify and resolve network problems, click Diagnose.

[V] See details  [Diagnose] [Cancel]

[Expanded Information]
Error code: 0x80070043
The network name cannot be found.

The WS0004 is the name of the users PC not the server.

We use roaming profiles, SBS 2008 and Vista Business.

Not sure why this would be? Its only one user.

If a workstation has a recent copy of the profile, you might try renaming the roaming profile server copy, login to the workstation with the most recent version of the profile, which would create a new copy on the server, with the correct permissions.

I think users have to have Full Control on the parent folder storing the roaming profiles, not just the profile folder itself.

I've done this with some roaming profiles that have issues, and it seemed to fix the problem.  I don't know why it stopped working to begin with.

I've edited my question. It was the redirected folder causing the problem. See above.
