JSI Tip 7532. When you check 'Grant the user exclusive rights' in the Windows Server 2003 Folder Redirection policy, the user is NOT granted exclusive access?

The subject behavior will occur if the Folder Redirection policy was initially applied when the Grant the user exclusive rights' box was NOT checked.

The Grant the user exclusive rights option only affects the initial redirection of the folder.

To workaround this behavior, manually correct the permissions on the redirected folder.

NOTE: See How can I insure that administrators have access to a user's redirected folder?
