  • Redirected Folder Permissions, can't delete.

    I am using redirected folders for all my end users. I have one user that can save/open/edit files in his documents folder but he can't delete anything. I have checked the security on the folders and he has full control. Is there a program that will audit the permissions in the documents folder and all sub folders or can someone tell me how to give him full control and cascade it all the way down through the sub folders?

    OMG, Need to buy a new mouse that does not have a thumb back button. To sum up my last 2 page post....

    Check the Shre premissions as well as the NTFS permissions.
    I have linked to a few sites that will give you what the premissions should be.
    If none of this works, it might b easier to recreate the user and copy files and folders across to the new user.
    Check the permissions on the parent folder. I can not find a ref for this, but Its something that you should try. <--- Basic info. <--- Enhanced secruity.

    Other then that, not typing everything out again. Sry :P

    If in asking for more details about a problem I seem to be rude, think about it this way, If I did not have to ask, I would not of been forced to be rude.

    Please assume anything and everything I say to be wrong unless I have provided links and evidence, or you have done the same.
    IE: you blow your server up following my advice, not my bad

    A OP is bad if I can go to and answer the question by pressing 4 buttons. "Ctrl +c, Ctrl +v".

        oops, I left this thread out there. I removed the user and computer from the domain. I renamed his redirected profile on the server and took ownership. I then added the user and computer and then copied all his files from the renamed profile to his new one. This fixed the issue. Some how I messed up the permissions and couldn't figure out what I did. Thanks for your help. This issue is closed. I'm new here and not sure how to give you points.
