Domain Controller Share Security Questions Windows Server 2003

I was just curious to the fact of I read a lot of the posts about folder redirection and user profiles and such. And i notice it always says when setting permissions for the root folders it says Mark the group "everyone" as full control. Now to me that seems as it would be a huge security issue. When in fact should it not be that the group you are adding to allow full control is "Authenticated Users" I was just curious as to why it is not said to do that instead of marking "everyone"

Please excuse the ramblings. But i was just slightly confused..

well you are basically right, but there is very little difference between the everyone group and the authenticated users group..... the problem is the giving them 'full control' however.  That is just dumb (even if you only gave them full control of the parent folders and not to the subfolders/files)(that setting is in the adv security by the way).  Since if you gave authenticated users full control of the parent folder, they could create subfolders and so no which is i doubt what you want.

I was thinking the same things along those lines but almost every post I have read or site I have visited on Folder Redirection it says set the Shared folder as Full Control and let it make the new folders automatically.

For a normal situation no I would not full control a folder for any reason other than maybe a share made for everyone to transfer files around the network.... Even then I would urge them to just use their home folders but some kind of situation always arises.
