User Home Folder says access denied

I have setup home folders on the network, O: drive for the existing users.  I created another directory on same drive for a new test use, "test".  I used the connect using option, selected "O" and pointed to the location as \\servername\USER$\users\%username%.  It replace %username% with "test" and indicated that the directory already existed and do I want to assign full rights.  I said yes.  

But on the workstation, when I select the O drive, labelled    "test on 'fileserver\USER$\iusers' (O:), it says "O: is not accessible, access denied"  If I go on the server and check effective permissions for the directory, it says I have full rights and the share permissions are read/write.

What is wrong and how do I determine what the issue is?

It works just fine for the previous users setup the same way.  I cannot see any difference.

Couple of things to try:

Map the drive directly to the share not to the subfolder i.e. map it to "test"
Remap drive on the server using the built in wizard and not manually
Double check the paths (in the text above you have "usersi")

Also try by not using hidden $ share see if this makes a difference.......

Try adding permissions for another user to that folder and see if he can access it.

Is your test users a member of the appropriate groups, e.g. "Domain Users"?
Does the test user have access to the folder containing the home folders? i.e. if USER$ on the server corresponds to c:\usersfiles\homefolders does "test" have permissions to traverse C:\, c:\usersfiles and c:\userfiles\homefolders?
