Are you talking about the field below in active directory?

I dont know if you have a specific requirement to have the user change their own home drive but if these are the fields you want to change there is a good tool called admodify.net that will allow you to do a bulk change of the user account properties.

also found out how to do it via Delegate on the OU just make sure it says specific - object user- the look for home drive and home profile

Sortof but that requires you to go into adsiedit and change the permissions there.  It can be done, but it isn't something to be taken lightly.  I would suggest you find an alternate method to updating the user information instead of having the users run the script (albeit as a logon script).

to change it.  You would run adsiedit.msc.  Then right click the proper container and select properties.  Go to the Security tab and select advanced.  Then add the user or user group and select only Create User Objects and Delete User Objects.

I must warn you that if you mess up, you may have to reinstall your AD Domain.
