Dissappearing User Files

By hart043 ·
I have 4 computers networked together in a workgroup environment without a domain. All 4 machines are configured with W2K and all are updated regularly with latest patches/fixes available through Microsoft's website. Access to network resources are managed via share-level access control. Users may logon from any machine on the network and appropriate DESKTOP, COOKIES, E-MAIL and MY DOCUMENTS information is transferred onto the host computer. Recently, new (or saved) documents are not reflected from one session to another. That is to say if I logon, create, and save a document to MY DOCUMENTS, I cannot find that document anywhere on the computer after logging out and then back in again. This occurs not only for NEW documents but for CHANGES to existing documents as well. Thanks to all for your help.

Dissappearing User Files

Look in this area on each system...

C:\Documents and Settings

If there is only _1_ person logging on to the system then you should see only 3 folders there; Administrator, Default User, All Users.

If there are more than 1 person logging into that system then that is where your problem lies.

NT4/2K uses profiles. That is, if I log in as user a I will not have access to user B's information. Nor will my user specific settings be the same.

Hope this helps.
