How to configure Home Folder with extra security

If you are having a domain controller, and decided to give a personal drive for all users, then home folder configuration is the best way to do it.

But if you want to make it secure for every users, then you have to configure something extra with ntfs security and share security.

You can get the overview on how ntfs permission works on network share from following:
