    Dear all,

    I am using on my network a server running windows 2003 and 2 client computers running windows xp pro. I have created a folder on my server named "user files" and have created multiple folders, each named after the users. I have mapped each of these folders for each user under the letter U:, but to do this i have to logon to each user account, does anyone know a way that can automatically create and map this folder when i create a new user?

    Thanks.

    I would say the easiest way would be to make a Domain logon GPO and assign a batch file that has - net use U: \\Server\Share in it. This way as the users are created in the OU you apply the GPO to they will all have the mapped drive.
