How to allow domain admins access to user's "My Desktop" folders?

... it's making me crazy.

WHY izzit that only the user can see into their own "My Desktop" folder. Can somebody PLEASE tell my why my domain admins cannot see into ANY "My Desktop" folder but their own? DA's can see everything else on the $%^&* network but those cursed "My Desktop" folders.

What is up!?!?

Either you are not a domain admin or the permissions are not properly set.
You may have to take ownership and then add domain admins. To do so right click on the folder and choose properties | advanced | owner | change the ownership to domain admins, and then go back and add domain admins under security permissions.

Default behavior when using folder redirection is that user shall be granted exlusive rights to the redirected folder.
Edit Folder Redirection GPO
Expand User Configuration\Windows Settings\Folder Redirection
Right-click on Desktop -> Properties -> Settings
Untick "Grant the user exclusive rights to Desktop"
