Changing Profile Permissions

By dan.f ·

i need to be able to have access to all of my companies user profiles on our file server. I know by default the only people who have access to a user profile on a file server is that individual user. There are ways around this either by setting it up in GPO to enable Admins to have access (this only works on newly created profile not existing ones) or by taking ownership of that profile adding the admins into to the folder then give the user back ownership, this is OK if you have one or two profile but I have at least 150 of them!

So my question is there a way of allowing administrators to have full control on existing profiles across the network in either a script or group policy, rather than individually doing into each profile?

be tried to use a bit of cacls earlier on but it didnt seem to work as well as i wanted. In fact it failed! what i would need it to do is take ownership, add admin full control, then give ownership back to the user of that folder! back to the drawing board i suppose
