I have user that is in Domain Admins group. I am trying to access folder that has full permissions for Domain Admins group but for some reason I get "You don't currently have permission to access this folder" error, I can Continue but when I do that the user is added to permissions. I don't want single users to be added to folders permissions. The folder is on my DC and I'm trying to access it when RDP-d to DC. When i access it from my local computer \DC_NAME\c$\folder it works. What is wrong with my domain?

    Mfinni is correct, but I would also like to add reference to this great Microsoft KB, last updated just a few days ago by the famed Aaron Margosis: support.microsoft.com/kb/950934 – Ryan Ries Jan 24 '14 at 0:40

Nothing is wrong, this is the way permissions with UAC work.

Try the search function next time :-)

User in domain admin group cannot access directory the group has permission to access

    I upvoted you...even though that probably means this answer will actually be accepted and the other one you linked to will end up getting closed as a dupe with my "answer" on it. :) (I'm always surprised to see an answer of mine when I click on a question link) – TheCleaner Jan 23 '14 at 22:27
