Default Cannot Save Documents to Home Drive

It seems that Word has a permissions problem with the way the users Home
Drives are mapped.

The problem I am getting is that I cannot set the Documents file location
(ToolsOptionsFile Locations) to the user's Home Folder. I get an error
saying "You do not have access to the folder \\Severname\Share$. See your
administrator for access to this folder"

The full path of the home folder is \\Servername\Share$\HomeFolder. This is
mapped to H: and the user can successfully browse and create/save files here.
However if you try and save a document via Word it will not let you.

The permissions for the users are set as follows:
Share$ - Share permissions - Full Control; NTFS permissions - None
HomeFolder - NTSF permissions - Full Control

It seems that Word needs NTFS permissions to the Share folder, however I am
reluctant to do this as it will propagate down to all user folders and I
don't want to block inheritance either as it will cause other problems.

We are running MS Word 2002 SP-2, Windows XP Pro SP-1 and the Home Folder
is on Windows 2000 Server SP-4

I have done a search and found a lot of other people with the same problem
but no solutions.

Please let me know if you have any ideas.

Word itself doesn't actually access the file system at all. It calls Windows
Explorer to do all that. So that's where your problem lies. There's nothing
you can change or tweak in Word itself that affects how it looks at folders.

I realise that the problem is permissions and that Word uses expolrer but it
must acess the folder differently as I have no problem accessing the folder
when I use Explorer.
