Permissions on users My Documents in their home folder

I have active directory configured, through group policy, to direct the users My Documents folders to their default home folder as defined in their profile in active directory.  The problem is that they are the only one who has access to their my documents folder.  Not even the administrator account can access that folder.  The admin can browse their home folder, but not the documents folders.  The permissions tab shows only that user as a user of that folder and it will not let me add the admin without logging in as that user to make that change.  Even so, I cannot make that change on each user for 50 users and new users.  Where can I tell active directory or group policy to allow the admin access on current and future accounts?  I cannot even delete the users home folder after they leave because of this problem.

Hi murryc,

You should take ownership on the folders, after you've done that, you will be able to change the permissions on those folders. Be sure to notify your users about this....

I applied the Microsoft solution.  Does this solution only apply to new folders created because I still cannot access the users current folders on the server when logged in as the administrator?

Yes, that solution only applies to new folders.

You should take ownership on the others and give rights to the administrator.
