|Subject:||Users Home Directory is Opening at the Root of the Share|

Windows 2K3 Domain
User Account - Profile - Home Directory
Connect to H: \\servername\sharename\username
The User Folder has been created and shared as normal
The users folders are all thier
However, some users have an issue that when they logon, their H: Drive
actually puts them at the Root of the Users. So when these users click on
their H: Drive they have thier user folder listed, then they will open it,
and there is thier stuff. Not all users have this issue.
Another note: Before I got here to this particular network, apparently this
company is in the process of moving over to a windows network from a novell
network. I found out that one of the admins here, (no longer here) installed
a program to hide folders that users did not have permission to. I found out
that the reason they did this was because of the problem mentioned above. So
I did find that this issue was inplace before they installed this program.
I had also just found out that this happens speractically (spelling). For
example, at this one location, a user had been working fine, then yesterday
she called to explain that she now has to open here user folder once she
opens the H: drive. Now none of the users folders show up, but the point
that her account profile is setup correctly.
Any help or suggestions would be greatly welcomed.
