Access denied to a mapped drive windows XP
Posted on 2010-08-25
I've got a user who is getting access denied to their mapped home drive on their laptop. In "My Computer" when you double click the mapped drive you get an "access denied" message. You can however right click the drive and press "explore" and it will open. You can also click on "my documents" which redirects to the same share. So obviously permissions are fine, i've checked and double checked these. I tried reinstalling XP, same problem. I made the user a local admin and a domain admin and it didn't resolve it either. The same thing also happened on another laptop, so it suggests to me it's an account problem, but I wouldn't know what. I've never seen anything like this before, I am baffled.
