There are few issues with code, example.. You are using command Get-Aduser -Filter * inside the Foreach loop, which will output all users in Activedirectory, another problem, you are saving user list in to variable $list but uses different variable with Foreach loop ( ForEach ($User in $UserList) ).. etc..
Try this code..
import-module activedirectory
Import-csv "H:\temp\userlist.csv" | ForEach {Get-Aduser $_.SamAccountNAme -properties Name,homedirectory,homedrive} |export-csv -path H:\temp\export\result.csv

Open in new window


If you want to correct your code...
Import-module activedirectory
$list =import-csv "H:\temp\userlist.csv" 
$(ForEach ($User in $list) {
 Get-Aduser $User.SamAccountNAme -properties Name,homedirectory,homedrive
}) | Export-csv -path H:\temp\export\result.csv
