Profile structure has been completely redesigned in Vista/Win7 and isn't compatible with profile from older OS (2000/XP). For the newer OS, the server copy folder for the roaming profile gets an *.v2 extension (username.v2). If only folder without v2 extension exists, it sounds like a permission issue preventing client from creating the profile folder during logon/logoff process.

See technet article for requirements/recommendations on file server.
check with terminal profiles and the path mentioned there

Thank you for the response, however this is currently setup and working with our XP workstations. It just appears to be Windows 7 is not pulling it down.

Everything works now, we added the .v2 extension to a new user profile folder on the server, set the permissions and copied over the existing information.
