I finally got around to giving this a try but I get the following:

\users\*.*') was unexpected at this time

anyone have any idea why that would happen and what I can do to correct it?

Resource Kit Tool: subinacl.exe

It will allow you to substitute ownership.  

Run this at the command line (all one line)

for /f "tokens=*" %i in ('dir /b \\server\users\*.') do subinacl
/subdirectories \\server\users\%i\*.* /setowner=%i

This will reset all the ownership to the username attached to the folder,
for all files in all folders in \\server\users.

I use GPO to redirect my user's "My Documents" folder to their home drive
which for my users is \\server\Users\%username%

Works pretty well and has been for a while.

Somehow, this has stopped working for some of my users.  The event log has
the following:

Failed to perform redirection of folder My Documents. The new directories
for the redirected folder could not be created. The folder is configured to
be redirected to \\server\Users\%username%, the final expanded path was
\\server\Users\dsmith. The following error occurred: 
This security ID may not be assigned as the owner of this object.  

The last line seems to tell all.  The user is not the owner of the folder.
So I Looked it up and sure enough, they are not the owner (administrators
group is).  But I don't see any way to change the owner.  They have
permissions and their Home drive is still mapping just fine.  It is just the
folder redirection.

How do I change the owner? Or is there a better way to go about fixing this?
