What is the best way to secure a redirected My Documents folder?
Posted on 2007-03-30
We just recieved 160 student laptops by way of a grant. Every student has their own folder on a student server and their My Documents folder is redirected to that folder.
The path is \\10.1.1.40\student$\
When they logon, a folder is automatically created for them. Everything is working fine, but some of the kids have found that if they open My Documents and then click the UP arrow, they can eventually get back to where they can see everyone elses Folders.
Is there an option where I can redirect this folder as ROOT so that they cannot use the UP arrow at all? Would that be somewhere under folder redirection or somewhere else in Group Policy?
Also under the folder redirection area in Group Policy I removed the checkmark that the user has ownership or sole ownership over their folder. This was because when this was checked, even administrators could not view the contents of their folders unless we took ownership. Would rather not have to do that and right now we don't have to.
I guess if we could solve the first issue with them using the UP arrow then we wouldn't really have to worry about that part.
Thanks for any help!
