Hi, i have a user in my AD that cannot access 'my documents' in the home folder.
when the user login to the computer the default file location will be \\dataserver\home.  under the home folder there are sub-folders namely desktop, my documents, favorites, pictures and downloads. the user can only access the desktop folder and all the other folders are having an error of access denied.

this only happen for a certain user.

Thank you.

1. Run TCP/IP Reset, DNS Flush
Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator
Then  netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
Also, ipconfig /flushdns followed by net stop dnscache followed by net start dnscache
Then restart the computer

2. Check Advanced Network Settings that Network Discovery and File/Print sharing are ON and the computer has a Domain Network Profile. Make sure that wasn't somehow changed/

3. Set up a new profile on the local computer for the person and try the new profile.
