This evening I will be transferring all of our employee user folders to a different server. This contains the following folders: My Documents, Application Data, and Desktop. Group policy is configured to redirect all of these settings to a server rather than the client's local hard disk.
Now for the problem...I am a member of the Domain Admins group. Each folder in the users directory gives me full control of these folders under the security settings. However, on some of the user's subfolders (My Docs, Application Data, Desktop), I do not have rights under security. I need to change this, because since I do not have full control of certain subfolders, I am unable to copy the folders to the new server. Please help me understand what is configured wrong and how I can change it most easily so that I do not have to manually take ownership of each folder individually.
Our users folder is organized as follows:
On a local disk on the server there is a folder named "Users". In it contains the login name followed by a $ of each employee's user name. For example, my name is Wayne and my share is Wayne$.
