I stumbled across this if it helps: n2ncopy | Free System Administration software downloads at SourceForge.net
Does anyone know of a free application which can do this? Unless it's easy, I don't really wish to script this as there are hundreds and hundreds of different folders to copy to.
I've found one application called FileBoss, but there is a small price tag with this. Many thanks!

It works, but it is a bit weird I must admit. Many thanks!
If the folder is in a users home area you could use GPO in 2008R2 to create folder in users home area (preferences I think). Have done this successfully a few times. This way all new users would get same folder.
You're right, but then I need to copy file(s) into that folder. I can't do that via GPO as far as I am aware.
I'm going to experiment another way of Desktop Folder Redirection, redirecting from a folder called 'Desktop' within a user's My Documents folder. The reason being that on wireless clients, desktop shortcuts are not being mapped consistently, yet everything else works. It's just really odd
Chuck that in a batch file, and edit the right bits. Remember to test it first...:: set the directory of the root folder (if the pupil folders are grouped by year, set to Year08, for instance)
:: For each subdirectory in the current directory, copy all files
FOR /D %%i IN (*) DO (
xcopy X:\path\to\files\* %%i\destination\ /i /f /k
ECHO Task complete. Press any key to exit...
pause > nil
:: Return to the original directory
EDIT: If you're going to be adding updated files on multiple occasions, chuck the /d flag in for xcopy so that it only copies files if they don't already exist, or the file to be copied is newer.
