Permissions for Home Folders, Server 2008 domain

Environ: Server 08 Domain, 60 students, setting up home folders in AD by giving everyone an H: drive mapped to \\server\userdata\%username%

On my server, i set up a share.  the share is named userdata.  I shared it and gave everyone Full, Change and Read permissions.

In AD, I set the H: drive to \\server\userdata\%username%

When my students log in and open My Computer, some students can "see" the home folders of other students.  Looks like my permissions are set up incorrectly.

Guidance on setting share permissions on that userdata folder please?

Thanks

Cliff

see post above.  

I created a folder named userdata

I shared it with the everyone group and gave them Full, Change and Read permissions on that top level folder.

In AD, I assigned everyone an H: drive pointed to \\server\userdata\%username%

I believe they should be setup as  NT AUTHORITY\SELF  with Full Permissions

so the shared permissions are correct but next you should setup the NFTS permissions.  which if I'm not mistaken are "NT Authority\Self" with full permissions should be set on the root folder and applied down to their own folder
