    User home folder, unsure of problem

    I created student folders for my students to logon.I thought I set the permissions right. Anyways, I just tested one, and the students get their folder mapped as planned. However, I then connected to the server and browsed, while logges on as a student I could get to the other students directories and delete, and write to their folders.

    I have the permissions on each folder set to as follows:
    Username(Whatever it is) : Full Control
    Administrators : Full Control
    System : Full Control
    HomeDirectoryServer\Users: Read Execute List Files

    Am I missing something or some reason why students can see other students folders and files?

    Thanks,
    Chad

    We have on the root home folder

    Pupils: List Folder, Read Attributes, Read Extented and Read
    System: Full
    Domain Admins: Full
    Staff: Read

    Then in Active Directoy Users and Computers i highlight all users, select properties, then click home folder, type in say

    \\server\homeshare\yeargroup\%username% and creates all the folders and sets all the right user permissions on each folder so they can only see inside there own.

    This is exactly how we had it setup.

    We entered

    //ServerName/Students/School/Grade/%username%

    There were no errors or problems reported. I have done this same thing in the past and never had this problem. I thought maybe I had missed a step.

    I would change the permissions, however, I am uncertain what I would change them to. Since the permissions appear to be correct to me.

    Just thought, on the student group with read, do you have "This folder only" set or "All sub folders and files"

    Needs to be this folder only to stop it inherating down

    Ours share only has the read attribute set for the student group. Also as Quackers said setting to this folder only, also do they really need list folder /read data as ours does not have that attribute set.
