RedirectedFolders for User on SBS 2008

We use RedirectedFolders for Desktop, Documents for Users to redirect to Server. For some reason when a User logged onto their WinXP machine, they received a message of Access Denied.
I could not look at Security of %USERNAME% as User had been granted exclusive access, so I took ownership of folder and subfolders.
I would like to know how I can restore the Users Folder with all correct permissions, and have the content (which I had backed up) returned to their folders?

What Backup solution are you using?
You should be able to restore to the original location and restore the NTFS permissions with the backup..

Or add the following Groups..

System - Full
Administrator - Full
Domain\Administrator - Full
Creator Owner - Full
Add the user and Assign him -Full

I worked out what this is, and let me see if I can explain ..... bare with me.

This SBS serves two companies, where some employees require separate Mailboxes to Send From and store, therefore we created two User Accounts per employee:
Test User CompanyA
Test User CompanyB

We also added an alias UPN for companya.com.au and companyb.com.au so we can differentiate between logon names, so when a User logs into their workstation they must use username@company#.com.au instead of just username.

Any User on Windows XP for some reason tried to access a RedirectedFolder using their 2nd (not logged in) User Account, when they received an Access Denied.

For short term we decided that we should add permissions from both Users to single Redirected Folder on Server so that there are no issues, seems that all workstations will be upgraded to Windows 7 in next few months anyway.

Case closed :)
