I have had a problem with two people in the past week so far to have this.

We have a Windows Server 2008 domain server and two of the people so far logging in has had their data disappear.  I was able to recover their data but what happened was the profile still was there in the Documents and Settings, but it was not showing on the profile they were signed into.  The weird part is, the profile they are signed into is their profile.  It never created a user.domain profile folder and replaced the old "user" folder.  It is still using the same folder, but not picking up the data that is in the desktop or my documents.

So far we have had this happen with two people.  Has anyone ever seen this?  I fear that the Active Directory may be becoming corrupt.

It is profile issue on the workstation.You need not woory about the AD corruption.You need to take the backup of the profiles on the client PC from C:\usres(Win7) or c:\Documents and Settings(Winxp).Take the profile.xxx extention as well.

Login to PC with local admin rights.Open the registry setting HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ ProfileList\UserSID
Check each usersid and select each sid and check ProfileImagePath key.Delete the usersid of the user who is facing the issue below is the e.g.
Usersid:S-1-5-21-2729624624-651620688-3123993742-2163
ProfileImagePath:%SystemDrive%\Documents and Settings\mikeh
Check all the sid of user and delete the same.You may see for example if the user id is mikeh in the usersid in ProfileImagePath it will be mikeh,mikeh.xxx..etc.

Once the Usersid's are removed,delete the user profiles from documents and setting here also you need to delete mikeh,mike.xxx...etcOnce done reboot the PC and login with user id new profile will be created and you are done,temp profile will not be loaded.
