    W2K domain issue:

    users can delete files from
    \\server.domain.local\data$\folder​
    but can't delete files from the
    \\server\data$\folder​

    The server is my domain controller.

    When I redirect the "my documents"-folder to \\server.domain.local\data$ , it appears as \\server\data$ in the adress bar, so users can create files but not delete them.

    It seems i mapped the driver to \\server.domain.loc\data$ when it can't find it, the computer seems to revert to \\server\data$
    Windows is a funny OS.
