After migrating user profiles, users cannot access redirected folders.

Cause:   If you made user profiles private, administrative credentials were removed from user folders on the client computer. Users need these credentials to access folders that are redirected to the server. After you migrate private user profiles (which include redirected folders), users may be unable to access their folders.

Solution:  Manually restore access to user folders on the client computer.

To restore access to user folders on the client computer
  1. Log on to the client computer.

  2. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Performance and Maintenance.

  3. Click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Event Viewer.

  4. Under Event Viewer (Local), double-click Application.

  5. Search for an event with the type listed as Error and the source listed as Folder Redirection, and double-click that event.

  6. Note the source and destination directory listed in the event description.
