Windows 7 cleint and 2003 server. A new user profile cannot create My Docs or Desktop onthe 'redirected' share., so redirection is failing.  When logged in as the user on the PC, I can navigtre to the redirected/user fodler and create folders, but not 'My Documents' or 'Desktop'. Error is: 'The action cannot be completed becuse the folder in it is open in another program'. I'm sure its not a pernissions proble onthe server beacuse I can create other folders. Suggestions please appreciated.

thanks,
Jo

I 've solved this my self by reseting the offline files cache. In Windows 7 you have to manually create/edit a reg key:

Locate the following registry subkey, and then right-click it:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\CSC
Point to New, and then click Key.
Type Parameters in the box.
Right-click Parameters, point to New, and then click DWORD (32-bit)Value.
Type FormatDatabase, and then press ENTER.
Right-click FormatDatabase, and then click Modify.
In the Value data box, type 1, and then click OK.
Exit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.
