I have a windows2003 server network with XP pro clients and several users who share the computers, Since most of the computers are in a lab - and shared - I had setted up folder redirection on my documents, desktop and application data,
Now the problem i am having is that if a smart person types \\servername\home\redirectedfolders
he will see everyones profile including his and could open and  see the content,

The Security Permissions on home are
Everyone: write
System: Full
Users: Read& Execute, List Folder Contents, Read

And the Sharing Permissions are everyone full control,

And the Security Permissions on RedirectedFolder are all inherited from the home drive,

Should i change the share permissions or is there something i am missing?
