Automatically set Administrator in a "Redirected Folder's" permissions - GPO

I have a Group Policy that redirects the Appdata(Roaming) folder to a network location. The folder redirection works fine. But, unless I uncheck "Grant the user exclusive rights" the Administrator will not be able to access the folder.

Is there a possible way to automatically have the Administrator and the user added to the permissions allowing both access to the redirected folder?

Thank you in advance for any helpful responses.

You have to assign the permissions on the parent folder where you are redirecting user's folders to and the new user folders will inherit the administrator permissions. See this article for some guidance on that http://support.microsoft.com/kb/288991

Redirected Folders do not allow for this feature. Only the Roaming profiles folder allows for the administrator to be added to the permissions.

I learned this after doing research and initiating a roaming profile gpo.
