    possibly a simple question ?

    Guys We redirect my documents

    Documents are stored like this C:\Share\Staff\Username

    The share is obviously the share and within the staff folder what should happen is every time a new user is created in AD the directory %username% should be created at first login.

    This is where im confused I have turned off inherit permissions as i dont like it . But every time a new user is created in AD they have the 'inherit permisson' box checked ..

    Is there a way to disable this ?

    Plus i have had to give the staff group write access to this folder so they can create the My documents folder . Which i dont really want to do as the individual user folders inside pick this up as they have the inherit box ticked.

    Any help here please ?

    DW i have figured it out

    If i set the home drive path to the redirected documents path it will create the folder when i create the account . So then the Staff security group wont need write access/read access to the Staff folder.
