Hi All In our office we have about 50-100 users most on Win XP Pro SPK4 and some on win2000 spk4 and all have roaming profiles, what it is its some people log on, and their roaming profiles dont follow them, they are able to connect to all the shared drives, use the internet etc. but their saved changes are not there. It is not a major problem as its only happened to a about 5-6 users but i was wondering if there was any one that has had the same problem before and might be able to help. Any help would be much appriciated!! Thanx in advance!!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Two key points to check: Is the network folder that holds the profiles shared and do the users have access to the share?

    A - are the users that fail getting a specific error message? If so then the problem is 'ownership' of the respective profile folder. Most of the time when I see this problem it is related to a user normally on 2000 trying to logon to a XP system. B - For 'roaming profiles to work the 'profiles' folder and ALL of the individual profile folders MUST belong to the network admin account (or each profile could belong to its corresponding user - inherently dangerous). Permissions for the 'profiles folder has to be read, traverse, execute. The indvidual profile folder has to add write permission. Good luck.
