Home folder access denied

Dear Experts,

Each student has shared folder access under active directory->Profile->Home folder->Connect M: drive

The folder is created automatically through this path \\FileServer\SharedFolder\Username.  i use \\FileServer\SharedFolder\%Username%

Although I gave share and NTFS permission to parent folder SharedFolder to that Username, and permission goes down, but still after user login M: drive is not accessible. Access denied.

Why is that?

Have you checked the Effective Permissions in the Advanced Security Settings for the folder?

Does it happen only for this one user or more users ?
I would check share permissions as they might be set up as Read
Accessing data over network to shared resources is combined with share and NTFS permissions. The most strict are applied.

So, please check if shared folder has allow for "Everyone" or "Authenticated Users" Full Control or at least "Change"

Parent folder has full access permission for that user Share and NTFS.  If i create the folder manually "\\FileServer\SharedFolder\", everything will be OK.  But auto creation create that issus %%.

Is the folder that is being created automatically definately inheriting permissions from it's parent folder?

how is the folder being created automatically?

The way i solved it was through copy profile form local desktop and give permission from their.  then each user had their own shared drive access
