Hi,

I have a very basic question regarding roaming profiles in Windows.

If I have hypothetically have a roaming profile for test1 user and share the permissions of the test1 user's profile folder to everyone, will all other users also inherit the roaming profile properties of the test1 user.

Please reply to this question as soon as possible.

Thanks and Regards,
Sriram.

Are you saying you set up the folder as a "Shared folder" with permissions set to "Everyone"?

Other users will have their own roaming profile folders. Those folders only inherit the NTFS permissions of the parent folder, unless you remove inheritance from those individual folders. Folder "test2" would not inherit the sharing permissions of "test1".
