SBS 2008 Redirected Folders proble,

I have a SBS 2008 server with one user whose redirected folders are not working. He does not have access to his desktop or his my docs folders on the server. I have tried numerous times to grant him rights are take ownership and nothing works. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Recreating a user can be quite complex -- especially in an SBS scenario because of Exchange and SharePoint.

Rather than doing that, you can just reapply the user template to this user to restore their proper permissions.  From the SBS Management Console, click on the Users and Groups tab and then from the User Tasks select "Change User Role for User accounts".

When that wizard opens, select "Standard User" and select "Replace user permissions or settings" and click NEXT.  Add the user to the Change column and click "Change user role".

This should reset things correctly for that user.

Is that user a part of domain ... i mean does he logs into the domain ?
All updates are applied and the OS is with latest SP ?
Any events in the App log on the client machine ?

You can try this but a bit lengthy.
1. Disjoin the users machine from domain.
2. Reset the Computer object in ADUC and Rejoin it.

The user is a member of the domain in the logs and all updates are applie and the SP is the latest as well. The problem is not with the users machine because this happens on any machine this user logs into. It has to do with the users account and the fact that he does not have rights to his own folder therefore redirected folders do  not work on any machine in logs into

What are the consequences of completely removing the user and then recreating them?
