Hey guys

We implemeneted our new file servers, which sync using DFS, Anyway a question has been raised about the security of the home drive share at the top level.

the share for example is \\server\homedrive

this homedrive share, has Authenticated users having full control However each user folder inside only has the permissions associated to that user, so in theory, auth users cant access each user inside

but should auth users have FULL control??

Yes this is correct. If you dril down in the advanced security settings you will see where the logged in user is the only user able to see his/her designated directory. Others can see the path but can't access it. They will get an access denied error if they try
