All of my users My Documents are redirected using a Group Policy on Windows Server 2012.  The redirection works great and I have no problems.  However, we had an employee recently leave the company and I need to give this person's files to another user.  What is the best way to do this?

If I am not mistaken, I cannot simply go onto the server and cut & paste the files from one person's folder to another as the new user will not have the proper permissions at the folder / file level since those folders / files were originally created by the old employee.  

I'm looking forward to hearing your responses!
