Problems Mapping a Network Drive

Problems Mapping a Network Drive

Problems Mapping a Network Drive

We are currently running a Windows 2000 Server and Windows XP Pro workstations.  In a department a worker left and I removed him as a user from both workstation and server.  I then added just a regular user to that workstation until that position was filled, made that user a member of Domain Users and that particular department's Global Account on the network.  When Logged in as that user I see all the network drives that are a part of that globle account but I am unable to access the one drive that is dedicated to that department.  What that drive contains is a software that is unique and specifically setup for that department. When I try to access that drive it says access denied, you don't have permission.  So I am thinking that it must be a security or permission issue somewhere but I am missing it.  When I created that new user I copied a user profile from another user from that department that has access to that drive but still no access!!  I can log on to that workstation as another user and I can access that drive and the program that resides on it.  

Any suggestions?  I appreciate any help or suggestions anyone has!!

the user is likely in a group that is denied access to the folder either through NTFS or share permissions
