System Requirements

  • Windows 2000, XP or 2003 Server
  • .NET Framework version 1.1 (Download from Microsoft or Windows Update)
  • A user account that has full control permissions on the work areas, or has ownership of the folders.


This tool is used to fix the permissions on user work areas. Specify your custom permissions and select the root folder where your user work areas are stored. A user account with the same name as the folder is given full control permissions by default.

In the above screenprint two folders were not configured properly. This is because no users exist in the domain with the same name as the folder.
