Add permissions to folder redirection my documents
Posted on 2013-12-16
I have a group policy that redirect "My documents" and Desktop folder to the server for about 40 PC's on one location and this scenario repeat very often for other domains that I manage.
As you know the My documents folder and Desktop has permission assign only to the user that own the folder and no Domain admins has access to.
My problem is that I'm using a Cloud Backup software like Livedrive to backup data on the server including the users personal folders. Livedrive service run under the administrator account but since the administrator does not have acess to the My Documents folder nothing get backup on those folders. My work around is to take ownership of each folder and add domain admin under security then give the ownership back to the user.
If is just a few users is not big deal but when you have 40 users and you multiply by 2 folders each there is a lot's of permission to be assign manually.
I was wondering if there is a command script that can be run eider as a logon script that will assign the domain admin rights to those folders and subfolder without taking the user out of the permission list.
