    Is it possible to auto create 4 subfolders in a users home area?

    I wish to create 4 folders in each pupils home area in the following manner:

    Maths
    English
    Science
    Other

    Is there a way to script this when creating a new user?

    As Head of ICT I would be expecting my staff to be teaching the creation of folders to their pupils at the beginning of Year 7 and then maybe reminding them at the start of each year.

    This is part of the Wales NC for ICT.

    I would expect the kids to do it (sorry my answer doesn't really help)

    assuming pupils home drive is u:

    if not exist u:\maths md u:\maths
    if not exist u:\science md u:\science
    if not exist u:\english md u:\english
    if not exist u:\other md u:\other

    add that to their logon script (assuming its a .bat rather than .vbs) and if the folder dosent exist it creates it

    That's just what I'm looking forward. Cheers!
