Here's what happened as close as I can figure. I have a teacher who log's in daily to a workstation with novell and a local user account on the workstation. I have a user policy package for the lab users in that room, the teacher isnt in the same policy. The teacher had a sub yesterday and the sub logged into the teacher computer using the generic novell account (which incidently was the same as the local workstation account). The policy for the lab has volatile user, edir credentials, and use local workstation account checked. So when sub logged out it removed the local workstation account and all the teachers files. Teacher comes in, tries to login and cant get to local workstation. I was able to use system restore to get her settings back, but no docs, etc. Is there a way to recover these files? I dont see any salvage files on the server at all.
