Every now and then on server 2000 I will find folders that have been created on several volumes. These folders are not created by an operator. They will always be empty and I see not problems when they are deleted. Given time they will show back up.

Each time they will be named like the volume they are found on.
For example if the machine is named DataStorage and the volume is Apps
the folder is found with a path of:
\\DataStorage\Apps\DataStorage\Apps

Any ideas as to what is creating these or how to prevent it?

Thanks for any ideas,
John

you can create an audit on one of your volumes and see what is happening. But be prepared to go through a lengthy log, but that should tell you what is creating them and why.

try this site, it should give you enough information to create audit policy on your volume.
