MS Windows 2008 User Home Folder Permissions

Trying to setup new user Home Folders on a new small office file server.

On Windows 2008 R2 and in Active Directory, set the Connect path the drive letter (P:) and the path (\\010fserver010\drive2\share6\people\%username%) which auto creates the folder and adds that user to the correct permissions but think we have the root \people folder setup wrong with permissions.

Every people is still able to see into other peoples folders when they browse by URL path.

Here's how the root \people folder was setup. Setup as a share, default limit for simultaneous users (16777216). Advanced Sharing Permissions have Administrator as Full Control and Users as Read.

The Security tab of that \people folder has SYSTEM and Administrators as Full Control, and Users as Read (which I thought was needed, as when removed people can't open their own folders).

hi,

Modify the user Security Permissions and keep only two permissions.

1. Traverse Folder / Execute File
2. List Folder / read data

if it not works, then please share the one user security permission screenshot.
