Folder Redirect Permissions Incorrect Windows 2012 R2 Essentials

genusys asked
Last Modified: 2018-12-20
New admin on this system.  I have users who's offline files are not syncing with the redirected folder because they don't have permissions on lower level folders below their user names. The sync error shows up as an event ID 502 in the application log. Also, the domain admin id can't view or copy any of the folders. I suspect that some how or another someone jumbled the permissions.

Is there a powershell script to set the permissions back correctly? Does anyone have advice as to the steps I should take? I don't want to lose any data guessing at a solution.
