    Hi.

    I'm trying to figure out how to set up the following...i want to create a
    standard profile, which will automatically create a users home drive and
    profile path, but then only have that user and no one else permssisions on
    to their profile and home drive.

    I can't figure out what permisions i need to set on the home and profile
    folders.

    In AD users and computers i have setup the profile path and home path as
    follows:

    \\server\profiles$\%username%
    \\server\home$\%username%

    This creates the folders with the users having full permisiosns, but they
    are also inheriting the parent folders permissions.

    I can't seem to figure out a way to allow the administrator to create the
    folder without the permsisions then being inherrited.

    I don't want to have to remove / add permisisions mannauly once the user
    folder is created.

    Thanks.
    Denis

    Denis,

    Create a user named "XYZ" using your profile paths and home paths. After
    doing so, set the desired permissions.

    Now for new users, copy/paste "XYZ" account and rename. :)
