Fixing User Home Folder rights with Powershell

When i visit a lot of company’s i see many times that the home folder directory have not the right rights. To fix this that’s al lot of work. Sow it time to write about it. I wrote a nice powershell script to fix it and save me and you a lot of time.

Three steps :

1.  Set Share Permissions for the Everyone group to Full Control.

2.  Use the following settings for NTFS Permissions (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/274443):

  • CREATOR OWNER – Full Control (Apply onto: Subfolders and Files Only)
  • System – Full Control (Apply onto: This Folder, Subfolders and Files)
  • Domain Admins – Full Control (Apply onto: This Folder, Subfolders and Files)
  • Everyone – Create Folder/Append Data (Apply onto: This Folder Only)
  • Everyone – List Folder/Read Data (Apply onto: This Folder Only)
  • Everyone – Read Attributes (Apply onto: This Folder Only)
  • Everyone – Traverse Folder/Execute File (Apply onto: This Folder Only)

Pay attention when configuring the home directory or folder redirection policies.  If you enable the setting to give the user exclusive access to the folder, you will override the inherited permissions and need to reset the ACL Winking smile

3. Run the Following script Repair-HomeFolderPermissions.ps1
