    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.
