Have the users logoff / back on. They may have lost their session token if the server rebooted and they didnt.

Does the message actually read:
"windows cannot access \\server\users$\"username"\My Documents"
because i would expect \\server\users$\dcanter\My documents.

From the server can you browse \\server\users$\ ?

was a good question, because once i started looking over the permissions, i noticed the users Owner creator was non existent and where not granted access to their own files. Thanks,
