permissions of restored profile

I'm running into a problem where, when we restore a backed up profile, all of the files are owned by the Administrator or whatever user the UAC runs as. How do you get around this? Is there a setting I need to check?

If this isn't built-in, I may have to write a script to do this since it does get annoying. Thanks!

Re: permissions of restored profile

I've found something. It happens when restoring from local media (hard drive or USB stick) right ?
I've added some instructions that will set ownership if the user account used to run the program is different from the target user profile. That will slow down a bit the restore process, especially when dealing with lots of small files but at least, you will not have to write a script that could also change file timestamps while setting ownership.
This will be in the next update.

Yes from a local disk, USB or NAS. That's fantastic. Thank you very much.

Ok, NAS as well, so I'm not done yet since network copy uses another method. It's gonna be a bit harder then

Re: permissions of restored profile

I've put ownership instructions in another part of the code and results are pretty good.
