Dear Experts,

I have a really vague issue regarding a User profile on a Terminal Server (Windows Server 2012 R2) fully patched.
1 user complains that on a regular basis his Windows Explorer windows are closed spontanously.
This user is working with 10 other coworkers and is the only one having this problem.

I am using redirected folders to a File Server for, contacts, Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Favorites, Links, Saved Games, Searches.

The rest is created on the TS itself.

The first thing i did was patched the entire server. and removed his profile on the Terminal server using the advanced system settings > Users Profiles. and let the user relogon.

Still the exact same problem.

I dont know where to start.

Any suggestions?

to make it sure the issue is not from the local machine of the user?

The customer has only 1 terminal server. is it possible that the explorer screens in the terminal session being closed because of an client issue?

Commented:
that's what to check that try the same client on another machine...

or check the event viewer on both server n client definitely I'll get the info.

EVent viewer doesn't show anything.
So you think the thin client i use for this user is the problem for closing Explorer screens in terminal sessions. that sounds a little odd but i can give it a try and change the thin client.

Issue solved by edit the GPO drive mapping to update instead of replace.
