Users Shared folder Permissions

I have a client with an issue.  He restored the Redirected Folders Share on his SBS 2011 from his Symantec backup but none of the permissions were restored so now all users have access to all folders and documents  within that share.

Is there a quick way to reset these permissions to the default settings? He assures me that there were no custom security settings so it should just have the standard default permissions.

I was going to turn redirection off, delete the folders and turn it on again but I don't want to have to mess about with this type of fix if theres a simple way to recover the original settings.

Hello,

Take ownership of the folder as the administrator, allow only the users account and admin full control of the folder.

If you stop redirection and thenr re-enable it will use the same folders, unless you rename the old ones first.  If you do this though the users will have to move the old folders into the new redirected folders as they are the only ones who will have access to the new folders.

Next time you do a recovery tick the box that says apply the original security settings.  Or do a restore from previous versions if configured.

Is there a quick way to apply the individual users account to the individual folders i.e.

\\RedirectedFolder\John - John & administrator only
\\RedirectedFolder\Bob - Bob & administrator only
etc.

There are 40 something users and I know I could do this manually but is there a quicker/proper way to do it?
