I have this code:

$servers = @('x5','x6','x7','x8')
foreach ($server in $servers) {
If(-Not(Test-Path "\\$erver\C`$\Users\$UserID\AppData\Local\Temp")) { # if true exit for, process the NEXT server
"\\$server\C`$\Users\$UserID\AppData\Local\Temp does not exist"
Set-Location "\\$server\C`$\Users\$UserID\AppData\Local\Temp"
if (-not (Test-Path "Low")) {
New-Item -Path "Low" -ItemType "Directory" -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue
icacls.exe "\\$server\C`$\Users\$UserID\AppData\Local\Temp\Low" /setintegritylevel `(OI`)`(CI`)low

The If NOT statement always causes the for loop to return the 'does not exist' statement even on a user (ME) where I *know* the desired directory exists. Why?? How do I fix this?? Should I use foreach-object?????

Thank you, Tom

You are missing the "s" in $server in your first IF statement. The resulting path has a null value for the server, which will make it always return the "does not exist" result.

I never would have caught that in 1,344,344 years...!!
Fixed and the script works perfectly 🙂
Thank you, Tom

No problem, I need the same kind of help often enough myself. But I do have a bit more experience with this kind of error and would have found it without help a little bit quicker, about PI/3 million years!
