Multiple My Document folders

By Old-Flyer ·
I recently created an OU in the GP manager of SBS2003 and one of the 8 client users creates about 12 iterations of the My Document folder when he logged in. If I delete the extra my document folders they are recreated at the next login. What is going on and how do I stop this effect. The policy is for folder redirection and roaming profiles. The My Document redirection is set to \\servername\user\%username%\. All other clients function as expected. If I login the the client machine under another user name I get the expected results.

Check the user profile on AD. Recreate that user to save time.

when you use the variable %username% that allows windows to dynamically create a new folder for each user that the policy applies to. if it was 8 my documents folder I'd say there was a glitch in the GP.

I'd try to create a new user profile for the user and see if that solves the problem.

Do you delete the extra my document folders on the profile copy on the server also? Server and workstation?

Just a thought.
