We have a windows 2008 server. My boss is a user and is a member of All admins possible. We have a home directory set up for all the users home directories and is listed as there home folder. I have them hidden with the dollar4 IE home\richard$. he has all the security right available but he cannot write to the folder.

on the permissions I have set himself and adminstrator groups to have total permissions.
for security settions i have himself, creator owner, system, richard, administrator and administrators(groups) all have full control.
under the advance tab in the permission this directory in the column interited from is listed as <not inheritied>

I can write to his dirictory but he can't

Additionally he has this directory set as his My Documents and can't write to that as well.

I have this roblem with 3-4 useres in the company and I thought I set them all up the same way. :thumbsup:

Thanks someone..

I hate computers :huh:

have you gone to the effective permissions tab of the folder and put in your boss's user name? That will tell you if there is some group conflict going on for him.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
