I have a Windows 10 machine that is not connected to a domain, and I have multiple local users. In order to free up space on my primary drive, I decided to move their Documents libraries to a second drive. To do this, I created a new directory (e.g. "I:\users\UserA") and set the Documents location to this new location.

I have a few questions regarding the ownership and permissions of these directories and files:

  1. Who should be the owner of "I:\users"?
  2. Who should be the owner of "I:\users\UserA"?
  3. What should the permissions of the files in "I:\users\UserA" be?

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide!
