We run SBS 2011 on our server. All workstations have Windows 7 Pro. We are using the exchange So the domain is being used.
Most of our workstations  Users folders look something like the one in Untitled .jpg.
Screen shot 1These machines are storing their documents in the shared folder on the server.
Then I have a workstation that seems to be connected to the domain, I know it is .
But the user folder did not create a (user. Domain) See Untitled1.JPEG. It Just created a folder with the users name and it is store all of her documents on her local C: drive in the Users fold
Sceen shot 2
Does anyone have any clue why?
Thank you

user.domain is only created if there was already a profile named user.

For example you have a worksataion not joined to the domain with a local user Tom.  There will be a profile folder named Tom.  When you join the domain there will be a new profile folder created named Tom.domain.
If however there was no profile named Tom at the time the machine was joined to the domain it would only create 1 profile folder named Tom.

Your first screenshot shows that, an initial local profile folder named tony, then after domain joined tony.alcondomain

To add if you disjoin the domain and rejoin you will may see a profile named tom.domain.000
