Folder permissions, redirected my docs, privacy and bkup

When we were initially setup our offsite backup, user's Redirected folder permissions were changed to allow them to be backed up. These are our user's My Docs, redirected to our server. These are meant to be private, but now are available for all to see. I'm just looking for some guidance here. On the redirected folder the sharing permission are full ctrl to bitleaplogon (an acct we created for bkup) and full ctrl to everyone. My question is does the fc need to be there for everyone. Is this what lets them into their own folders. Under security settings are: fc to domain admins and SYSTEM; read&exec, list, read to bitleaplogon and local server\Users. (Not sure why localserver\users is here?). On an individual folder under security the permissions are fc to localserver\admins and everyone. Not sure how this is set to give user access to their files, because there is no list under an indiv. folder for the indiv. Basically, I'm very confused and looking for some help. Is there a standard way to set permission for redirected my docs to make them private and able to be backed up? Thank you.

How many users are you talking about here?

You can remedy the problem of everyone accessing the folders by removing full control from  the "users" group in the parent folder's security properties.  

The unfortunate part of this is you will need to add the invidudual users user accounts Full control or Modify permissions  manually to each folder, so they can regain access to their folder.

I don't really see a shortcut here. This was an unfortunate side affect that arose from the change.

also, if you are using that bitleaplogon to backup the resources of the server, you should not have to give that account access to each folder. The backup login should have administrative access to the server, therefore giving it access to backup everything within that server.
