The policy "add administrators group to roaming profiles" only applies to newly 
created roaming profiles. Otherwords to new users.
If you applied the GPO and profiles were already created you have to use xcacls 
or cacls to modify the permissions to the excisting profiles.
But be carefull with the xcacls or cacls command you can also ruin it in a few 
commands from the command prompt! TEST before implement it on all users!!!!

How are you trying to access the profile exactly? Is this for a user who is 
logged on as themselves and they get access denied on their own folders or are 
you trying to access a roaming profile on the server as an administrator? 
Because, by default, Administrators are not granted access to profiles.  And, 
I’m not sure but I believe that policy you set below only helps at profile 
creation time.

gptalk@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx: [gptalk] Access Denied on Roaming Profile Folder(s)
Hey Everyone,I have a problem with roaming Profiles/Folders.Every time i want 
to access the folders of each respective roaming profile but i keep getting an 
access denied.The share permission is set to full control for everyone The NTFS 
permission of the folder is set to Read+Write for ALL users.The NTFS 
permissions of the drive has everyone set to Read+Write .Even when i've changed 
all permissions set to Full Control for Everyone, i still get this message. In 
the GPO where folder redirection is enabled and Roaming Profiles is i've 
enabled "Add Administrators Group to Romain Profiles"i understand there is the 
dsacls command, but would know whether it would be pertinent to this issue and 
if so, what would the syntax be ? Thanks,-- HBooGz:\>
