Users profile home folder does not display

I have recently deleted a users domain profile from his laptop off his laptop with the admins account. When I went to view his folder on our Domain Controller it did not show. I am not sure if it was this way already before I deleted the profile from his laptop I only noticed it afterwards.  Although, if I manually type in the address to his profile folder on the DC it brings me to his folder and everything is there. His profile folder ( H: drive) also shows and is mapped as it should when he is logged in on a computer.  Why would his folder not show under users on our DC but everything is there when I manually type in the URL \\server name\users\Mike

Depending on what you have redirected; I've seen cases where someone's My Documents was redirected and when I went to look for it on the server, for whatever reason, it was named My Documents, but was connected to his account via ACL. Can't quite remember how it got that way, but I was able to rename it and it still work.

Come to think of it, I did notice that as well: the different icons

I saw it happen to 2 remote users (users of laptops) and both DIRs had the same name. I was able to rectify it on the spot and never had the time to really dig into the reason behind it.

one of the users happened to be one of our only users using Winodws 7

I did find a forum where others were discussing this and it seems to stem from synchronization which would make since seeing how it's only affecting laptop users.

I selected my own solution as part of the solution because I had the proper document name and icon listed for my situation. It was  direction that lead me to to it. I awarded all points to blazedanblazin.
