If the parent folder is set to read-only, can the users write new files to
the desktop? If not, then that would be a problem. However, I am pretty sure
that desktop settings like icon position and organization are set in the
registry, not in the file system, so that wouldn't explain it. What happens
if you disable offline files for those desktop shares?

I have it set so that the user has exclusive rights to their folder.  So
in that case, I think it is read only, correct?

And now that I look at the folders on the server, the Read only box is
checked under the folder properties for each user.

The way I have folder redirection working is I have one top level shared
folder, and under that folder, will be the usernames, and within the
username folders, there will be a desktop folder and a My documents
folder.

Again, all set for exclusive rights for each individual user.


So it sounds like you are inferring, that because they are set to Read
only, that the changes to the desktop are not saved because it can't
save to the ini file?

If that is the case, why would that be the case, when each user has full
control rights (I think via default) from having exclusive rights to
their folder?


And the other question is, what is a way around that, or what way,
should I have set it up, if I still wanted each user to only have rights
to their folder without manually setting permissions for each user?


Thanks

Is that folder set to read-only on the server? In other words, are you
delivering per-user folder redirection or one desktop for a group of
users?

Yes I am

And for some reason, SO FAR, it only seems to happen to my laptop users
that dock and undock, but I will try it on my desktop to see if it
happens to me.   But any insight you can provide will be helpful.

I was looking at some free utilities that save the position of desktop
icons as an intermediate step.

Are you redirecting the desktop using Folder Redirection, by any chance?

Has anyone ever seen, if you have a windows XP box setup for Offline
Files to sync with a network server, the desktop icons rearrange
themselves after reconnecting to the network and performing a sync

First off, the icons all disappear when the notice pops up about needing
to sync once connected.  Then, once you hit the ok button to sync, all
of the icons disappear off the desktop.  If you hit refresh, they are
all arranged "grid" style, totally destroying the way that you had your
icons setup before the sync
