    What permissions to I need to set on the root share of my user folder
    to be able to only create the user folder when creating a new user?

    When one of my helpdesk personnel creates a new user, she would then
    type in the profile path in the home folder box
    (\\server\users\%username%) but she gets an accessed denied on creating
    new user folders. I only want her to create folders and nothing else.
    She should not be able to read or list the content of these new user
    folders. Is this possible? What do I need to do?

    I figured it out. Give the user/group modify permissions on the root
    folder and only the root folder of the users share. When the users
    share is created through AD Users and Computers, the user folder is
    then created but since it is a user folder, the user and domain admins
    only have access to this folder and not the individual you orginally
    created it.
