I have been experiencing errors with the User Profile service failing to upload part of a profile at log off after recent upgrades from windows 7 to 10 1803. This error is evident on the windows 10 Clients.

Here is a pseudo Payload

Event ID:      1509
Task Category: None
Level:         Warning
User:          Domain\J.Z
Computer:      x.xyz.com.subdomain.domain.net
Windows cannot copy file \\?\C:\Users\J.Z\Favorites\WinMessenger to location \\?\UNC\FQDNFileshare\profile$\J.Z.V6\Favorites\WinMessenger. This error may be caused by network problems or insufficient security rights.

Testing with a blank new profile as recommended in this thread https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/9a53fb0e-4b60-463f-ad61-3909b7b6b2c8/roaming-profile-sync-issues-favorites-folder?forum=win10itprogeneral with a similar issue works as expected, no errors.   When the user logs off the User Profile service attempts to sync their profile to their roaming profile location and fails.  Specifically it fails on 3 places.   Copying

%userprofile%\Favorites(the folder), %userprofile%\Favorites\desktop.ini, and %userprofile%\Favorites\Links(the folder).
Get a 1509 error - The specified server cannot perform the requested operation

Our network profiles are stored in %homeshare%\.profile which translates to \\servername.subdomain.domain.net\home\.profile.v6 . Refer to source and target path above in payload. If I try to manually copy the files from c:\Users\Userid\Favorites to \\servername.subdomain.domain.net\home\.adprofile.v6 I get a windows security warning prompt. If I copy the files out of the Favorites folder to another location in my profile, say Documents, and then try to copy the files I get no windows security prompt.  If I create a new .txt document in %userprofile%\Favorites\ I get the prompt if attempting to copy it to the corresponding \\servername.subdomain.domain.net\home\.profile.v6\Favorites\ folder.  I do not get the prompt if I copy a file from %userprofile%\Documents\ to \\servername.subdomain.domain.net\home\.profile.v6\Favorites\ folder.

Looking for advice from others who have encountered this and which workarounds worked for them?
