Easy question I'm sure:

What are your recommendations for creating user folders on a windows 2008 server and securing these in such a way that only the one owning user has access?

Thanks,

This is normally how its done by default.  Though anyone in the administrators group could access them if they needed/wanted to.  Did you also want to restrict administrators from accessing them?

If you're in a domain you can just use the folder rights to grant full control to the root folder for an individual person.  Everyone else won't be able to access but the main user account will.

As the administrator I am creating the folders for the user, now if I add that user with full control then that user should be the only one , other than administrator, that will have access to that folder, correct?
