    I use a GPP registry key to hide the network: (full key path = CLSID\{F02C1A0D-BE21-4350-88B0-7367FC96EF3C}\ShellFolder)

    Also, even if students could find users home folders, ACL's really should already be locked up tight since creation surely? (automated home creation via AD will apply the correct permissions to individual folders)

    It's 2013. Why are people still relying on the UI to obscure access to stuff as their Standard Operating Procedures. Windows has had proper Access Control since '93. It really isn't acceptable.

    The OP's case excluded, since they clearly recognize it as a mis-configuration rather than SOP.

    +1, as vaguely explained in my post, however I like to hide the network just in case a share is incorrectly hosted by someone, somewhere I don't know about. I am not the only administrator on my domain.
