Redirected Documents on Server 2012 are accessible to everyone, even though they shouldn't be!

I have a server that is having issues with Redirected Documents. For some reason all of my users are able to access all of the other users documents.
It is Server 2012. Included are a number of screen shots showing my settings. You can see my NTSF permissions don't include "everyone". "Authenticated Users" Only has: List folder / Read data, Read Attributes, Create folders / append data, and Read permissions selected.
Enable Inheritance is turned off on the share folder.

Thank you for your help!

In our environment we have creator owner and domain admins with full permissions and not authenticated users. Everyone also has full share permissions.

I think you may have some settings applied incorrectly. Take a look here.

You also need to look at the permissions for the C:\ and for DATA. Make sure you do not have a group policy that allows users to have full control over C:\ (ie. Giving them local administrator privileges). If you do, make sure that it isn't applying to your servers.

I found the answer.
Who ever configured the server put "Domain Users" into the "Administrators" group....
Very stupid.
