Wo finde ich denn die scripte? Ich sagte ja schon dass das profil mit XP  
hochladen konnte.
Where do i find those scripts? As i said XP could fill up the directory. I  
loaded the profile to the server with XP.

Ich hatte mich schon mal mit dem lokalen admin eingeloggt und dann auf das  
share zugegriffen. Dabei hab ich mich da als der user (=%u) eingeloggt und  
konnte problemlos lesen und schreiben. Deswegen hab ich erst angefangen  
mich so zu wundern.
I logged in as the local admin to the client and accessed the share as the  
user (=%u). Then i could read and write to it without any problems. That's  
why i started wondering...

Sadly not... It seems to be somewhat more complicated...
