Hi, I'd like to map a directory for each user to the Q: drive.  before I map it I'd like to check if the folder exists, if it doesn't, create the folder and allow only system and the user permissions to it.

Is this possible?

You shouldn't allow users to create folders in your home directory structure. If your Q: drive is supposed to be the user's home drive, set it up when you create the user. Under the user's profile, set the home drive and path to Q: and the according share, usually something like \\server\home$\%Username%. The drive will then be automatically mapped during logon.
You might want to allow administrators full access as well; backup programs (usually running under an admin account as well) need access to the home folders as well ...
