small update. We've got the time synced right. The desktops and server are
in sync. But the problems persist. There are days where multiple users
report that deleted files come back.

I suspect some issues either in the Windows itself or in the network. I
guess that looking into the windows desktop logs is the way to go now.
Which logs in the event viewer show most relevant information for profile
