This can be done but will take a little work.
The trick is setting NTFS permissions correctly.

1. Create the share (share permission = everyone) (never restrict access using share permissions, always control using NTFS.

2. On the folder go tosecurity/permissions.

Here is the tricky part.

On the bottom of the window uncheck "Allow inheritable permissions" Press apply. In the window that pops up press copy.

Now for permissions:
Domain admins= full control
Everyone = Modify
Creator Owner= Modify
System= Full

Now click the advanced tab,
Highlight everyone, press view/edit. Apply to this folder only.

What did this do.

Whenever someone creates a folder in this directory, they will be the only ones who can get toit. The everyone group will not propagate to the folder. Obviously the admin group will, which is what you want, ALWAYS!!

This will work, but if you only have a few users, I say create the folders your self and add the user explicitly.

Good luck

This is the basic way to make home directories for all users. When you create a new account, go into the profile section and in the box marked "home directory" give them a drive letter h for home is what I use. Map the directory such as \\servername\home\%username%
servername is the name of the server where the home directory is located and if you enter %username% it will fill in that users name and only he will be able to see it when he is in the home directory.
For existing users, go back intop their account settings and fill in the same information and all the users will have home folders created this way.
Good luck!
