    I have alot of these. Not sure how this happens. this is on my terminal server, it is part of a domain.

    In my “users” folder in explorer, I see names “john doe” and “john doe.domainname”, “jane doe” and “jane doe.domainname”

    However, in the userprofile area in computer managemaent, you don’t see the john or jane doe, just the john or jane doe.domain name, and Account Unknown’s.

    Troubleshooting by creating a new folder as i am logged on, i then log off, log on as an administrator, go to windows explorer, and the folder shows up in the users that are using the “john.domainname” profile, NOT the john profile, So i am assuming that the “account unknown” is the profile without the domain name.

    any ideas
