Limiting User permissions to the user folder RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, 

    So I have recently been placed in charge of a network.  The prior network administrator arranged the permissions so that users have access to the user folder on the server.  The issue comes in where unauthorized users can access other user's documents on their desktop or in the other user's My Documents.  I have tried changing the permissions so that users only have access to their own user folder, but so far any change to the permissions cuts the user off from their own desktop and documents.  

    Is their a way to limit users access so they only have access to their own user profile? 

    Any help would be appreciated.  

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    Is the profile roaming profile are local profile. if roaming profile the fileserver Share folder should have the permission administrator full permission and user read permission

    In active directory user properties on the profile select \\servername\sharename\%username%

    This will resolve your problem

    Thanks

  • The profiles are roaming.  I will take a look and see if this does it.    

    Thank you Syed.
