I have client PCs redirecting my docs to a shared folder on the server (via a GPO)
Is it possible to change the default security of files & folders that are created here?
I need access from the server the all files and folders for all users.
Currently I have to take owership for each folder after it has been created.

Unfortunately, the short answer is no.  Microsoft recommends that you do not take ownership of the folders as it can mess up the users rights.

BUT, the solution for any new profiles is to add this setting in group policy:

Computer Configuration\Administrative templates\System\User profiles\Add the administrators security group to roaming users profiles.

This will add the administrators group to the new folder structure, BUT will not add it to pre-existing profiles.
