Files present on Windows Server 2008, but "missing" from Home Folder on Windows XP SP3 workstations
Posted on 2011-02-17
We have just moved all our files and users to a Server running Windows Server 2008.
The following description relates to one user out of a few dozen, but the same issue has been reported by 3 other users - in each case 1-3 files have been reported as "missing".
For example, the user's home folder is assigned via User Account | Profile | Home Folder | H: \\server2008\userabc
On the Server there are 21 folders and files in d:\Users\userabc\folder1\folder2
But when userabc logs in to his Windows XP SP3 workstation and navigates to H:\folder1\folder2 he only sees 19 folders and files - i.e. there are 2 files "missing".
I am desperate for a solution to this problem!
