When a new user logs into a computer for the first time with their AD credentials the homedirectory is created if it doesn't exist. The permission however are full control for the user. I would like the user to only have modify permissions to there folder, subfolder, and files. Is there anyway to accomplish this?

I think that is impossible, because they create their home folder, and if they don't have full control they will not be able to create the home folders from the beginning. Users must have full control to create folders, modify will be sufficient.

Here is a script to create the directory.  I don't think it will set the permission though.

Firstly, we want to create a home directory with user permission & then allow him only not to delete the file, its same like i'm the owner of my vehicle but i can't drive it.

So, its not possible & other way you can give access to shared drive with read permission or remove full permission to delete anything from the sharre.
