I had searched long for the problem of only partially sync'd profiles on Windows 7/8 . Windows XP has worked fine.

There was always the error "Your roaming profile is not synchronized correctly with the server. You have been logged in with a partially synchronized profile".

The application protocol of windows told me that the file "\\leela$NOCSC$\profiles$\tn.V2\ntuser.ini" can't be copied to "C:\Users\tn\ntuser.ini" and  "Details - The System can't find the given file."

Testparam don't show any misconfiguration. But the problem was the parameter "wide links = Yes" in combination with "unix extensions = No" in the [global] section.

Now I put "wide links = Yes" only in that sections where this parameter is needed so that my section [profiles$] are not affected by "wide links" anymore and everything works fine now.

But what do "wide links = Yes" with the [profiles$] section that windows 7 profiles can't be loaded anymore? Does anybody know?
