  • If you have an pre-existing Neo folder in the profile folder it will append 'machinename or domainname' and use a different folder upon first logon with Neo account.  

    Are you possibly trying to copy files into the profile location before the profile is used, this happened to me all the time with the $OEM$ folders.  I edit the default profile to avoid the issue.

    If you want to fix it, you need to delete both the "Neo" and "Neo.Domain" folders (from a non-neo account) and then log in with Neo and it should use the plain 'Neo'.  Does that make sense ?
