Jamie -  you're probably right.

 

Gino - under normal circumstances it's folders like Desktop, Documents,
Pictures, Music etc. that takes up the space. Those folders (and a few
others) can be redirected natively (recommended). Don't you think it would
be enough to just move those folders?

Actually I think he wants to redirect the entire profile, not just specific
folders. I don't believe there is a native policy setting to do that (would
have to tattoo the registry), although I could be wrong.

You can use Folder Redirection for this:

Is there a way to change the default path of user profiles via GPO? We want
to move the default location from the C drive documents and settings to an
alternate drive. I know it can be done via registry changes and this can be
incorporated into and ADM, just want to know if there is a native setting to
accomplish this change.

 

Thank you
