User cannot access "My Documents" on Server 2003
Posted on 2009-04-13
On a Server 2003 network users "My Documents" are redirected to Z:\Docs\User Name
File permissions are inherited from Z:\Docs. A user requested that they be the sole person with read access to their documents. At that point Administrators, authenticated users, creator owner and the user had access to the documents.
On trying to remove "Authenticated Users" I received the popup that this could not be done with inheritable permissions ticked. This was unticked and that group removed. Since then there is no access to subfolders, even when "authenticated users" are added and inheritable permissions are reinstated.
The effective permissions for that user show that they should have access but access is denied to all subfolders (even with inheritence enabled).
How can I get Administrators and that user access to the files again?
