Posted on 2009-04-29

Ok so i  created a top level share called folderredirection$. I gave everyone full control on the share level and then the ntfs permissions i left default. Now i setup folder redirecetion for my docs and desktops to redirect here. I also removed the exclusive rights tab so the the admin could see the files. Now when i check the secuirty settings of a folder redirect that was created automatically i have admin full rights which is ok then i have the user with full rights(to this folder only) and then i have users read/list/etc. How can this be? the only rights i want is adnin and user full control to this folder and all subfolders and files surely i dont have to through all 221 of these users folders when complete to change the rights?

    So you want to propagate the rights through to all sub files and sub folders?

    You'll need to go into Advanced properties of that folders security settings and change the permissions appropriately, then ensure you check both boxes below to propagate them downwards..
