troubleshooting Question

Home drive showing root share instead of user share

We have user folders setup as \\server\users$\username. There is an H: drive that maps directly to their folder.

So when they login it shows their H drive and when they double click it, it takes them into their folder.

Sometimes when users login though it shows their H drive as the User$ folder instead. Now they click the H drive and it shows all the user folders.

What causes this?
How do we resolve this?
