    HELP! - Reset Student Homedrive access...

    HELP!

    My Boss just managed to wipe all my students homedrive user rights!

    Any ideas how to restore them - APART from one by one?

    Basically the security policy that allows them to access their individual home share on the server.... ie: \\SERVER\Share$\%USERNAME%

    Take a look at NTFSFix. It allows you to change/replace/add to permissions on folders/files. It can even take the foldername as the username

    Another great app from WiseSoft I have a script that does the same but this will be quicker for me to use incase I need to make changes.
