I am wanting to map a drive through group policy preferences. We have a share populated with a folder for each user. The folders are named LASTNAME-First Letter of First Name.

Ex: Moody-J

I would like to use preferences to map a drive to each users specific folder.

Ex: \\servername\share\Moody-J would be my mapped drive.

Have you looked into the home drive option under the AD User Account preferences?  Every user can have a home drive and drive letter set.

It isn't for folder redirection or home drives. We currently use folder redirection extensively. This is for a piece of software.
