Myself as administrator has no access to these newly created folders on the server, unless I take ownership of the folder. If I do this then the userprofile cannot be accessed by the user logging on at the workstation. A temporary profile is loaded and I get a message that all changes will be deleted when the user logs off. This still happens even if I give the user full permission to his folder.

The only way that I have found around this is to logon as the user, so that the .V2 folder is created. Log off and log on again as the user. I then go to the network share where the roamingprofiles is stored and give the administrator full access to the folder, will I am logged on as the user. Only then can I access the folder as the administrator on the server.

Is there another way to do this, or what am I doing wrong

This Technet thread has some solutions to the problem near the bottom of the page. It's a common problem with roaming profiles apparently and there seems to be a few ways to work around the problem. Hope this helps.
