Desktop Not Accessible

I have several users within the network that are suddenly getting a message on their screen when they login that says: "\\server\redirectedfolders\user\desktop is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact administrator. Network path not found".

I have a feeling it has something to do with redirected folders. I need to be able to turn off everything to do with redirected folders while giving these users their desktops back.

Any thoughts appreciated.

Some further information. It seems to be linked to the user profile. If i create a new user and login then I don't get that error or any redirected folder messages. I'm wondering if something got corrupted with the user profiles when I disabled Folder Redirection. I hope not, as I don't want to have to copy over profile settings for all 7 users that are having this issue.

did you check the permission for desktop folder to user?

I'm not sure I understand what you mean. I've disabled redirected folders.

My suggestion would be to re-enable redirected folders, and check to see that the users have permissions for the drive/folder where the profiles are stored.

Occasionally, I have had a users profile corrupted and give this error.

To resolve it, I took a copy of the users folder, wiped out the profile, remade it and copied the old profile data back over it, which worked for me.

Looks like it was a corrupted profile issue. I had to recreate profiles for all 7 users, which was a pain, but solved the problem. Thanks!
