Hello Experts

This may be a simple question but I want to make sure it is done right.  From my past experience, getting access to users redirected folders is not so easy once users are created.  I have a brand new SBS 2011 server and want to set it up in such a way so that I, the admin can access all data in the redirected folders for the users but at the same time prevent users to see each others data if they were to browse to the redirected folder.  Is there an easy adjustment to do this?

yes this is possible using a powershell script, you have to be careful with changing permissions manually else the redirect will fail.

you need to edit the attached script (rename the extension .ps1 I cant attach powershell scripts directly)and add your domain, user and location of the redirect folder. Once you have done this run the command below and it will work through correctly setting the permissions.

psexec -s -i powershell -noexit "& 'C:\Permissions.ps1'"
