I have a Windows SBS 2003 SP2 DC that is severely messed up. This system has 55 users and they are all using redirected "home" folders to "e:\Users Shared Folders" I need to backup the files in each users folder, but I constantly get "Access Denied" error messages with Domain Administrators.
I followed Microsoft's guide on trying Moving data folders needless to say that fails at trying to change the permissions on the user folders.
e:\Users Shared Folders\dianad is no longer needed so it is safe to remove, I went into the inheritance of all the sub folders under
e:\Users Shared Folders and pushed it(inheritance) because this is going to have to happen to them all anyway.
I set the share access to
everyone and NTFS permissions to
~\dianad\ and removed inheritance for this folder only, now when trying to remove this folder I can remove all the folders except desktop and mydocs. So I figured that's weird I know I set all the permissions as loose as possible on this test case, so I went to the command line and used cacls,
Below is the output:
E:\>cacls "e:\Users Shared Folders\DianaD" /T /G "Administrators":F /Y processed dir: e:\Users Shared Folders\DianaD Access is denied.
Here is the output from cacls query on the folder
E:\>cacls "e:\Users Shared Folders\DianaD" e:\Users Shared Folders\DianaD BUILTIN\Administrators:(OI)(CI)F
Now I have been trying everything I can to reset the permissions on this and nothing has worked. I have searched around the net and found some similar issues but nothing ever gets resolved.
I am hoping someone here has run into this and can point me in the right direction.
