Folder Redirection Permissions

We have setup our users using Folder Redirection and an issue we seem to be running into is permissions for the administrator to access the folders being redirected.  We want the ability to access all the files and folders being saved on the server, but I guess by default we aren't given access.

Now I have 50+ users, so this isn't something that I want to change on every folder, sub-folder and file manually.

You should change the permissions on the root share.. "Usershare"

\\servername\usershare


Add the domain administrator group and administrator account to the share. Assign both Full permission to the share. Inheritance should take care o f the rest.

DirkMare, I can't set those permissions!  I have tried this time and again and I always get an Access Denied error.

VirastraR, I read through the link you sent and I'm guessing I need to recreate all these folders in another location with the admin rights already on them and then I'll be set?

Are you logging on with domain administrator credentials?

If you are and you still can't you need to take ownership of the files using the advanced tab.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

We just ended up getting rid of the folder redirection.  That got rid of the issue.

Im glad you got rid of the issue, although we would have appreciated more info when we asked for it (more than 5 months ago) we could have sorted the original problem.

I appologize for that, but I was under the gun to get this fixed and we ended up going away from the folder redirection soon after we started running into issues here.

I'd rather find a real solution, but we had to do something to fix the issue immediately.
