    Copying Profile data


    I'm trying to move some admin staff redirected profile folders from one drive to a new SAN drive (using robocopy) - but get constant errors (logged in as Administrator) because I don't have permission/ownership. Documentation I've read suggests that taking ownership might screw everything up - any ideas on a safe way to proceed?

    Dependign on how your userprofiles have been setup, it is very possible that they have been created without administrator security rights.

    You can take ownership and then give it back if you are particularly worried about that. Use 'chown' for this.

    There is a tick box in the GPO too that you can uncheck that says something like 'grant user exclusive rights to folder'.
