    Admin access to user files?

    Currently playing around with AD trying to work out how want to setup our user accounts.

    W have created a couple of new users, which appear to login fine. But when logged into the server as Administrator we can't see or access their files.

    Is this normal? Is there a way of allowing Administrator to access all user profile folders?

    Thanks

    Neil

    If your using windows vista or above there is a setting Group policy to do exactly this.

    it's located in

    computer\configuration\administrative Templates\system\User Profiles

    the policy is called

    Add the Administrators security group to roaming user profiles

    Currently using WinXP and Server 2008 R2.

    Am I editing Group Policy on the server (tried, didn't work) or on each computer?

    On the server side. when this policy is applied and linked to an OU which contains your test machine, run a GPupdate /force on that machine and reboot if necessary and it should add the administrators group to any newly created profiles.
