Folder Redirection Permission for Existing Directories

There is an existing user directory structure that I want to configure for folder redirection. I know the group policy part. How do I set the permissions so folder redirection works and the users folders remain secure so only domain admins and user have rights?

Folder Structure: \\Data\users\%username%

You have to make some changes to permissions so that admins have rights by default they don't

TechNet article here   http://support.microsoft.com/kb/288991

We don't do that where I am.  In cases where we do need to go into folders for some reason we can take ownership but we don't need to do that often.

Thanks

Just to add, the KB Mike provided didn't include share permissions

Thanks you both for your help.

Folder rediection is working but I have some very strange results with the user directories on the server. See attached file for details.

Any idea why this is happening?

Actually I'm manually changing the folder location for the My Documents folder for testing purposes.

I found this link on support.microsoft.com which explains exactly what is happening.

On the GPO you created. Did you set the root path of "Documents" to \\server\share\%username%"?
