Is there a way as the admin of our servers that I can set ownership of files within a users folder without being at the users PC with them logged in? Here is why I ask.... we are running a w2K server with quotas enabled on the user shares. The problem I am having is the quota application (W2K) reports on ownership not total of files in the folder. So, when one of my team members moves files for a user or has to place a large amount of files within the folder due to a rebuild of the users PC, those files are moves with the ownership of Administrator, not the user. So, what this leaves is several GB of files in the users folder but quota is only reporting what the user owns. I want to be able to set ownership on those files so the user is the owner of all files is their folder. Can I do this without being at their workstation with them logged in?
