Laptop's my documents, favorites, desktop etc... Location all got switched to D:\ (recovery) somehow. When I went into the properties -> location. Its only showed the location but the buttons to change it were missing. I reloaded the OS, and today I rejoined it to the domain, and it instantly moved the location back to the recovery partition again. I am connecting to Server 2008 R2. I also tried to change the location in the registry that was a no go aswell

If this is happened WHEN you join to the domain it tells me the domain has a group policy that is changing the default location of the my documents. You may want to check with the person in charge of the domain and see if this is the case or not. You can ask to have your laptop excluded from this policy since you do not have a actual D drive as your D drive is the recovery partition.
