Hello Paul,
Why don't you just use a GPO to add the file (Computer Configuration/Windows Settings/Security Settings/File System)? No need to use a script for this, or do you have a specific reason?

BTW: As far as I know a user's picture in that folder is contained in a .dat file, not a jpg.

Thank you for your answer.
I enabled the GPO – Computer Configuration / Windows Settings / Security Settings / File System.
I have a synology with an active directory server. This is certainly the reason for copying the picture.
