I have taken over a network from a former administrator and have been told that users are able to see other users home directories. I would like to know what are the best practices for an administrator to set up home directories and lock them down to everyone except the user who owns it and the administrator. I want this mapped under the profiles tab in ADUC. I want to change all the settings from the former admin, implement new ones but not have to manually go to every folder and make the changes.
We have a hard drive that we share as users$, the servers name is fileserver, so in ADUC I want it to connect to \\fileserver\users$\username-do I make this the name of the user or is it better to use %username%.
