If you haven't already done so, create a user group for all the users that you want to give access to. Then add all the users to that group, and then give any permissions you want to that group.

Why? Thats by design..

Dont mean to question but if there is a safer alternative to what you are trying to accomplish, that would be ideal..

our users need to be able to create new folders unders c:\users\...
their own directory is backed up but they need also directories which are not included in the backup

I don't know of a Safe Method to do this. These are protected folders. By default the SYSTEM account is the owner of a profile folder, so granting the same rights can be hard.....

Not to mention the lack of security between user profiles.....
