I have a Windows 2003 server that I have for about 40 of my 60 users to access when they're out of the office. My Windows 2008 R2 server is the DC. I need to be able to backup all of the user's profiles which are being stored on the Windows 2008 server and I would also like to be able to add an icon to each user's desktop. I know I put the cart before the horse when I created all of the accounts and didn't add administrators access in the group policy. So now I need to take ownership of each folder and give the creator owner full access to each profile folder. When I do this, I get two errors (unless I give the user administrator rights...which I don't want to do) 1). Windows cannot copy file \\.....\\application data\adobe... 2). "Windows cannot find the local profile and is logging you on with a temporary profile...." After taking ownership of the profile folder, I am able to have the server backup the data. Is there a better way to do this with where I'm at now having the users already created with them being the folder owner? If I do go with this route, is there a group policy change that I need to make to allow them to login without giving them administrator rights? Thanks for your help!
