Greetings, If I use test-path to check for the existance of a folder, in some circumstances I get False. Thats all well and good, but I know that in some cases the folder doesnt exist and in other cases the folder exists but I dont have permissions to get to it. I need to be able to find out which one it is when False is returned.

From what it sounds like, you want to know if the test-path failed just because of access denied. If that is the case, if the test-path returns false run some more test.
Use a try .. catch block and try to access the path and check your exception
