Use windows explorer to create a folder on the hard disk. In this example, the folder is named Home.
Share the home folder with full control share permissions for the everyone group.
To do so, right-click the folder, click properties, click the sharing tab,
Click share this folder, and click OK.

Start the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in.
Locate the user account for which you want to set up the home folder. By default, all users are in the Users container.
Right-click the user account for which you want to specify a home folder, click properties click the Profile tab, click Connect, specify a drive letter, type a path in the To box, and then click OK.
