I have always been told to create a profile folder when setting up a new user account. However, recently I was told this is not necessary; Windows will create the folder when the user logs in for the first time. Is this the case?

If you specify a valid path for the profile the folders will be generated when the user logs on for the first time. When specifying a profile location I normally use:

\\server\profiles\%username%

As long as \\server\profiles exists, the %username% folder gets created automatically.
