    Configuration SetFileFolder
    {
    Import-DscResource -ModuleName 'PSDesiredStateConfiguration'
    Node @('C10')
    {
    File LogFiles
    {
    SourcePath = "C:\fso"
    DestinationPath = "C:\scripts"
    Ensure = "present"
    Type = "Directory"
    Recurse = $true }

    Here is the error:
    File C:\Users\Vester\Documents\IT 385\Untitled5.ps1 cannot be loaded. The file C:\Users\Vester\Documents\IT 385\Untitled5.ps1 is not digitally signed. You cannot run this script on the

    Can you run other .ps1 files without a signature in the script from your workstation?

    Your error says that the script is not digitally signed, so you have a restricted execution policy.

    Here's a good article by Don Jones, might be a bit old though. Article
