I am trying to make a simple batch script for windows to find out if a user's folder exists on share on a server. If the folder does not exist, I want it to create one with the user's username. Here is what I have so far.

if not exist \\server\\sharedfolder\%username% md \\server\sharedfolder\%username%

Basically I want to run this as a log on script so a each user can have their own folder on a server, some already have one, so that is why I need to check to see if they have one or not.

Assuming that users have sufficient permissions on sharedfolder to create a new folder then that command should work fine.

Thats what I thought, for some odd reason it will not make a new folder in my script. If I isolate it and put in a sperate batch file it works, but in my overall script is does not. Here is what the whole batch file looks like. It should check the folder existence first and then create one if it is not there. Then map that folder on the computer.

if not exist \\server4\archive\%username% md \\server4\archive\%username%
 

net use i: \\server2\activefile /user:domain\%username%
net use j: \\server2\archfile /user:domain\%username%
net use t: \\server1\team /user:domain\%username%
net use m: \\server3\users$\%username% /user:domain\%username%
net use l: \\server4\Archive\%username% /user:domain\%username%
