A number of User home folders have been randomly renamed to Document 1 and I cannot rename them
Posted on 2014-02-19
I have an issue with a number of my users home directorys on a file server that have somehow been renamed or not picked up the correct name when created.
Our servicedesk create the folders so I am unsure how long this issue has been occuring. Each users home folder get automatically mapped to drive letter H as part of the logon script.
An example of this issue is, if you were to copy the file location from the users profile tab within Active Directory and navigate straight to that location using a UNC path it works correctly.
However, if you navigate up a level and search for the user name it cannot be found. There are a lot of folders named Document 1 which are the users folders but I don't know how the names have changed.
When I try and rename one of the Document 1 folders it renames all of the folders named Document 1 to whatever I have tried to rename it to.
\\ServerName\home$\Location\BloogsJo takes you inside the user Joe Bloogs folder.
If you go up a level into the Location folder and search for BloogsJo it is never found.
\\ServerName\home$\Location and search for BloogsJo it does not find the folder.
Any help with this one would be greatly appreciated
