Not sure if this is the correct forum for this post... I am having a strange problem, I have windows 2013 server r2 running onb our server and I have about 40 PC's running windows 7 Pro. all of these systems were configured by me out of the box and set up identical (except for the user and computer name of course) .

 

When I am on one of the PC's (any random user) and I click on network and see all the computers on the network, if I click on one of the computers I will see the user folder and then the public folder inside of the user folder for that PC.

 

For some reason, I have an issue on one computer, when I click on this specific computer I not only see the public folder I see the users private folder, so I can see all their documents, pictures, etc..

 

I checked and cheeked and there is nothing different in any settings, share options, etc.... It is setup exactly the same as all the others, but for some reason everyone can see this person's private user folder.

 

Any ideas on what to check, I am at a loss or I am overlooking something..

No one has any ideas on what to check?

 

I went in today and checked every setting again and it is identical to every other machine but this is the only one that you can see the users personal user folders. every other system you can only see the public folder.

If this is a domain nework, the local Pc settings may not be what's causing the issue. Is the "user" folder a domain user or local Pc account?

It is a domain network, but the user folders and accounts are from the local machine, these were running for the last 6 months with no network until last week.

I checked again as this user has 2 computers at their desk, they are identical computers and I went through the settings of everything from the user, network, sharing, server logins, etc.. and everything is identical, except for computer 1 you can see the personal user folder along with the public user folder and computer 2 you can only see the public user folder.

 

really at a loss here any help would be great..

Edit: Are the computers Joined to the domain? 

Have you checked the NTFS permissions on the User folder?

You can try using Accessenum To view the registy permission settings. I also found This Link that may help.
