A SBS2003 user reports that they are unable to access contents of their "My Documents" folder from their computer.  If they sign on to their account on another computer, they have access.  What might cause this, and how to remedy?

Is My Documents redirected anywhere?  Check the location tab under properties to verify.

What error are they receiving?

I changed the path in Reconfigure My Documents Redirection, in Manage Users.  Documents now redirect to the network folder for their new name, but the computer still points to her old network folder even after restarting the PC.

It may be a machine group policy setting, or not.  I copied their files back into their old redirected folder and enabled permissions for their new account.
