My Documents Now Setting Owner Properly

While debugging the issue in my last post, the customer pointed out the the owner of uploaded documents and created folders wasn't being set as expected i.e. as the user logged SharePoint.

This was the result of overcoming the double-hop problem – one option is to access the file system as the SharePoint app pool, or the user defined in a configuration file. In these cases, it was this user who was set as the owner of the object. I've now fixed this so the owner will be the user logged into SharePoint.
