I ran a group of windows update for my 2008 Ent SP1 system. This system has several ISCI connections. When the update was completed the ISCI connections that hosts the home share folder for everyone had the permissions corrupted. Some people's folders "cannot display owner", others had all permissions dropped and still others were untouched. Sine the folders name relates to the persons login I decided to take ownership  and re-apply the security settings to them one by one. After doing the first 100 of them I found the files in the home folders could not be deleted, renamed, or added to by anyone but admin.  Side note I noticed in the process of taking ownership and adding the admin account to the permissions, when I applied it the system added two more names to the permission list. System and Everyone
