      Hi everyone,

      I’d like to find out if I’m approaching my case appropriately. I’d like to grant access to a network folder to a user that is on the domain.
      As in code below I use Get-Credential to get their user name and password and based on that I would like for the folder to open.


      $credential = Get-Credential
      $userName = $credential.UserName
      $pass = $credential.Password

      if ( ($userName -eq 'USER' ) -and ((([Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal]::PtrToStringAuto([Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal]::SecureStringToBSTR($pass)) -eq 'PA$$WORD')) ))

      invoke-item \\SERVER\data\staff\fax}

      Or should I do this in some other more cleaner way? Thanks

      Are you trying to open a folder with a credential? You could create a temporary PSDrive which has built in support for a PSCredential.
