I'm trying to properly setup a share for BackupPC to backup my user's profiles. BackupPC uses a special user
backup to connect to each PC and backup the profiles from there. I've create a separate share on
C:\Users giving read access to the backup user. Since the underlying NTFS permissions also play a role I've also allowed
Read & execute for the backup user to
C:\Users. In the "Advanced Security Settings for Users" dialog it is displayed as applying to this folder, subfolders and files.
Contrary to the permissions on
C:\Users, the backup user cannot access the content of the profiles. BackupPC complains:
NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED listing \username\*
Also, checking the effective permissions within the folders shows no access for the backup user.
What am I doing wrong and how can I set the permissions for the backup user so that they are inherited correctly?
I'm running Windows 7 on the clients and the current version of BackupPC on GNU/Debian 6.0 Squeeze.
