Backup Image Folder Permissions

Problem:
Server: Windows SBS 2008

There was a server meltdown a few weeks ago when a user attempted a mass folder redirection that included all workstations desktop profiles in the company as well as Documents folder, etc. I use Shadow Protect for backup and when I mount the backup image from before the event to attempt recovery of some users documents which are listed under  Users --->FolderRedirections --->"users name" I get an access denied message that says I need administrator permissions. To attempt to get around this for a couple of users I made them temporary network admins, logged in under their credentials and was able to copy the needed files. For other users I try this for I still get a access denied message....need admin permissions.

It looks like the security has not been restored from your backup.

Right click the folder, click security, add the user who requires access.

If you can't see anything in the security then you will need to take ownership of the folder:

On the security tab, click Advanced, click the owner tab, change owner to administrators, tick replace owner on subcontainers.  Once complete close properties box then reopen and configure the necessary permissions on the security tab.

bobsyeruncle,

I manually changed the security on the folder(s) but did not do it exactly as you suggest. I'll give it a go and see what happens.

Do you get access denied when accessing via a share or locally on the server?  If so it might be the share permissions (Sharing Tab) rather than NTFS.  Best practice is to set the share permissions to "Everyone - Full Control" and then use NTFS permissions to apply security.
