    Access denied roaming profile folder

    When a certain user logs on i get a message saying
    The roaming profile cannot be loaded
    Cannot copy \\gossip\UserData\Profiles\Family\Joe\Cookies to C:\Documents and Settings\Joe\Cookies
    Possible problems include network issues or access rights.
    The problem appears to be access rights because on the server if i go to F:\Users\Profiles\Family\Joe\ i cannot see the cookies folder in the folder list (ive got hidden files enabled) but if i type into the address bar F:\Users\Profiles\Family\Joe\Cookies i get access denied, if i set the permissions on the folder F:\Users\Profiles\Family\Joe\ and make it apply to child objects and folders i just get another access denied message while trying to set permissions.

    So how can i change the permissions to make this work again.

    Thanks

    Have you tried taking ownership of the folder/subfolders to make the permissions changes? This is usual problem that comes up with me on my network.

    Ive tried taking ownership of the folder that the folder Cookies should be in then i get a error saying
    Error while applying security permissions to F:\Users\Profiles\Family\Joe\Cookies
    Access Is Denied
    Ive also now tried using cacls.exe to change the permissions but still access denied im going to try rebooting the server and a linux boot disk if that doesnt work.

    Any other suggestions to try?

    Thanks

    SUBINACL

    This tool has helped me out a ton. Use the setowner action then sometimes you have to play with it. One method after using setowner is to

    right click on the folder > properties > security tab > advanced > owner tab > other users or groups > even if its there type administrator > check replace owner on subdirectories > ok out of it all

    right click on the folder > properties > security tab > add whatever permissions you want > click advanced > replace permissions on child objects

    SUBINACL

    Display or modify Access Control Entries (ACEs) for file and folder Permissions, Ownership and Domain.

    Access Control Lists apply only to files stored on an NTFS formatted drive, each ACL determines which users (or groups of users) can read or edit the file. When a new file is created it normally inherits ACL's from the folder where it was created.

    Syntax
    SUBINACL [/noverbose] /object_type object_name [/action=parameter] [/help]

    Key
    object_type: service e.g. /service Messenger \\ServerName\Messenger
    keyreg e.g. /keyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software
    /keyreg \\Srv\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\KeyPath
    file e.g. /file *.obj /file c:\test.txt
    /file \\ServerName\Share\Path
    subdirectories manipulate files in specified directory and all subdirectories

    object_name : This will vary according to the object_type - see the examples above

    action : setowner=owner
    will change the owner of the object e.g. /setowner=MyDomain\Administrators

    replace=SamName\OldAccount=DomainName\New_Account
    will replace all ACE (Audit and Permissions) in the object
    e.g. /replace=MyOldDomain\Finance=NEWDOM\Finance

    changedomain=OldDomainName=NewDomainName
    will replace all ACEs with a Sid from OldDomainName
    with the equivalent Sid found in NewSamServer
    e.g. /changedomain=MyOldDomain=NEWDOMAIN
    This option requires a trust relationship with the server containing the object. Examples:

    subinacl can do everything that cacls and xcacls can do and more besides.

    List permissions to log file:
    subinacl /noverbose /nostatistic /outputlog=my.log /subdirectories "C:\Program Files\My Folder" /display

    Restore Permissions:
    subinacl /nostatistic /playfile my.log

    Change owner :
    subinacl /file C:\demofile.doc /setowner=MYDOMAIN\BillG

    Bugs

    Running subinacl against a subfolder, as in the example above will affect just that folder and it's contents. However if you run subinacl against a folder in the root of the drive it will scan the entire drive for folders matching that name (which can take some time).
    e.g.
    subinacl /subdirectories "C:\Spud"
    Will also match
    C:\Program Files\Spud
    C:\Documents and Settings\Spud etc
