Server 2012 Folder Redirection Backups Fail

    Question

  • Hello,

    I wanted to know if during the setup of Folder Redirection under GP if I can go back and Clear the "Grant User Exclusive Rights" after the fact without causing other issues?

    I forgot to do this at one of my customers and now I am not getting a good backup as the backup program is generating "Access Denied" on all of my customers Redirected Folders.

    Thank you for the help.

    You can clear it, but AFAIK it will not touch existing folders - so you
    have to cleanup manually...

    takeown + icacls is the toolset you need here...
