The system resides on drive C and i have remote desktop configured on this server . I would like to configure some specific folders on drive D so when users log in they will only see their specific folder.

And another scenario would be if a user logs in and creates a folder on drive D and then logs out , that folder would be invisible to others but visible to him. Possible ?

Anyone willing to help ?

Thanks.

Certainly. Firstly create a top-level folder for all your user's folders to go in--ie D:\UserShares. Share that folder so that Domain Users have modify permissions. So I'll assume that folder is now shared as \\servername\UserShares

Then open active directory, open the user that you want, and configure like the attached picture

When your user logs in they will automatically get a folder created under D:\UserShares\theirusername
It will be mapped to whatever drive you set, and the permissions will be set for only them to access!
