One of our customers Active Directory and file servers was having issues with backups on users home directory.

We designed a PowerShell-script to remedy the issue. The script looks through the a selected Organization Unit and verifies that all users have a home directory set, and that it has the appropriate NTFS-permissions.

In this case all users had Full-permissions on their home folder, which led to some users resetting permissions and removing unwanted permissions (Backup or Admin accounts) on their “private” folders.

This script will reset Modify-permissions for the targeted users.
