    Little annoyance

    Hi,

    I've reinstalled a server as it was playing up and found a annoying little problem.

    I moved the home folders to tidy the computer up a bit and reset all the permissions. When you select one user and change the home folder to \\servername\Year11$\%username% it comes up with a nice message saying it already exists, would you like to make the user have full control.

    Great.

    Problem is when you select a full list of users it doesn't work. Saying it already exists and doesn't change the permissions. Shame really as I thought it was quite nice.

    Take a look at the xcalcs.exe command, i use it to change permissons on home directories when i add new home drives for the new year 7's during the summer.

    I've attached my create home drive bat file for you to look at.

    Ignore the md bit, that is just there to make the directory, the xcalcs bit is below that.
