I have a windows 7 sp1 64 bit laptop that does NOT display the local drives when connected.

I have a windows 7 sp1 64 bit laptop that does NOT display the local drives when connected to the server (2008 SBS).  I've checked the box under 'local resources' that allows the drives to be accessed when connected.  On the server side, i've checked the profile properties and under 'environment' the "connect client drives at login" is checked.

Only one profile is being impacted; others are able to see their local drives.

What am i missing?

The profile could be corrupt try renaming the profile and allow it to recreate during login.

Could be group policy (especially if it's only happening to one user). I believe there is a setting to hide local drives in there that could be getting applied to the user.

You could logon as the user and run a gpresults to see if anything like that is getting applied to them.

also maybe the drive is using a drive letter that is currently being used. i would check in Disk management and change the drive letter

Deleted the profile directly on the server (c:\users\xxxxx).  That seems to have fixed the 'local drive' issue; however, am now getting an error message that a 'temp' profile will be created for the user.

Did some more digging into that problem (https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/2309e2e5-ca3f-499f-856c-395ffa23b8ce/remote-desktop-user-getting-locked-into-a-temp-profile-each-time-she-logs-in?forum=winserverTS).  I looked in the registry (as instructed) but only found the user's key that's related to the roaming profile versus the RDP profile (which I expect to see under c:\users).  

Going through system properties (under advanced tab ->settings -> user profiles) the profile in question is not found.

What am I overlooking?
