User Profile Corruption

By geoffmc ·
I encountered an interesting problem last week when one of my users decided to logon to our Win2000 server from a different client (we use thin clients using terminal services via Citrix). After logon he noticed that all of his desktop icons were missing including my computer and recycle bin. He then logged off and started his own terminal and the same thing happened. Why would this happen? What's the best way to solve the problem and retain all of the settings in his profile?

Hi There,

Please make use of policies to specify retention of profiles of logged users

In the alternative try browsing the c:\documents and settings folder .
You may find the users profile there doesnot matter if it may show .old you will still salvage a good deal
