We had a policy go out by accident and stop it after a few hours. The policy created 2 folders and copied a file to the local system.

Is there a way to find out how many systems received this policy in our Domain?

Unfortunately no, there is no reporting mechanism in group policy.

is there any other mechanism that can go out and look at a system to see if a file of folder is in a certain location?
You could write a script to touch each workstation to see if this folder exist and export the results to a text file on a network share...
