For example, F: mapped to \\server\vol1, U: mapped to \\server\vol1\users, and h: was a map root of \\server\vol1\users\userhome (where userhome was the actual home directory of the user in question).
While most users did not map to U: and only saw their own home directory in "H", IT managers had access to all user home directories under U: So, PHB could see u:\users\phb, and h: as the same directory.
One day, while "tidying up", PHB deleted his entire home directory from u:\users\phb, because it was an exact duplicate of h:
All I can say is thank goodness for salvage!
A similar issue happened many years ago for a small site that was doing Windows networking. UserA had shared out her C: drive from the root to other users in the office as H:, and she managed to map her own C: drive as H: She then phoned me when her Windows workstation stopped working after she deleted all of the duplicate stuff on the H: drive! Alas, that time there was no salvage!
