On my network share, how can I prevent users from creating folders that exclude Administrator permissions?
Posted on 2008-11-17
I am using Robocopy to backup our network share's files and folders. The files and folders all have a complex and carefully laid out set of ACLs/permissions that I need to preserve.
However, Robocopy came across whole directories of files that it couldn't copy, because of "Error 5: Access is denied." When I examined them closer, I found that they were files contained in folders that users had created themselves, and therefore did not have any domain administrator permissions or ownership.
Is there any way that I can allow users to create folders with fine tuned permissions, but still enforce/propagate Administrator ownership or privileges for all files and folders on the network share?
