When a client logs off from a Microsoft Windows 2000-based server, a roaming user profile may not upload successfully, and event 1000 may be logged in the application log. When you view the log by using Event Viewer, you may see an event that is similar to the following:
Windows cannot copy file C:\Documents and Settings\TestUser\Favorites\Travel Planning\Traffic.url to location \\PROFILESERVER\Userdata\TestUser\Profile\Favorites\Travel Planning\Traffic.url. Contact your network administrator. DETAIL - The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.
If you have turned on Userenv logging, when this problem occurs, text that is similar to the following is logged in the Userenv log:
USERENV(9010.8bc8) 13:16:22:346 ReconcileFile: Failed to rename file <\\PROFILESERVER\Userdata\TestUser\Profile\Favorites\Travel Planning\prf146.tmp> to <\\PROFILESERVER\Userdata\TestUser\Profile\Favorites\Travel Planning\Traffic.url> with error = 32
This problem occurs because when the memory management system tries to rename the temporary file on the profile server to its intended name, a sharing violation occurs.
For caching and increased performance, the operating system may temporarily retain memory sections that describe a file. The redirector does not send a close operation to the target server until memory sections that describe the file are closed. In this scenario, a rename operation is issued against a file while the operating system is still caching section objects for the file. Because the close operation has not yet been sent, the file is still in use, and a sharing violation occurs.

After this hotfix is applied, when the scenario that is described in the "Cause" section occurs, the redirector forcibly closes all memory sections that describe the problem file and then retries the operation. However, a related hotfix covers the case where a memory section is never closed because of a unique combination of low pool resources. Therefore, to resolve this possible cause of the problem, also apply the hotfix that is described in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
Sometimes, the destination file server shows that the profile is still in use until the Terminal server is restarted. You can check to see if this is the case by typing the following command at a command prompt:
The hotfix that is described in the "Resolution" section addresses the sharing violation that is mentioned in the "Cause" section. However, there are many other causes of roaming profile upload/download errors.
