I've created a new user who should have the same rights to network folders in the ad as antoher. Is their any way to copy those across or do I manually have to add the security settings?

I know there are ways, but the best way to manage this would be through implementing Group Permissions.  That way you don't have to search down through the user permissions to find them, copy them, or delete them.

The best thing to do would be to document User A's Permissions, then create Groups reflecting each area and type of permission.  Then you have a visible Group reflecting a certain type of permission, and granting that permission is as simple as adding the user to the Group.

Good Luck,

Ja thanks, I've tried doing groups (in this organization) but the client has to many gradular permissions, drilling deep down multiple folder levels, I'd prob have almost as many groups as users ;)

Yes I'm in an Active Directory 2003 domain
