How did you configured Share and Security (NTFS) permissions on a share/folder "USERS" ?

Please try to follow with similar thread at Technet forum at
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winserverfiles/thread/f60a87ff-b1ef-41ff-9c26-4834288e4c28/#832b02c1-a3a2-4132-9857-71c0c0d95ec3

I think you might have given target forlder location and chose (this is the default I think) create a folder for each user under the root path.

if it is the case remeove the %USERNAME%

In addition take a look at this TechNet article that goes into the Share and NTFS permissions

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc781907(WS.10).aspx

Can you navigate to  \\server\users from that users machine logged in as a user?

Thanks

1st make sure all users have access to the path you provided

second

type it like this

\\server\users\%USERNAME%

without last slash and ""
