Thanks all for the input. I thought it was going to be easier. Maybe the quickest is looging as the user.


Regards,
Javier.

You can open regedit and go to file, load hive, browse to the users ntuser.dat file in their profile, make the change, then uload the hive. That's the long way but if they all have a different path and you can't script it or use a gpo, then manually us about all that is left

But to have access to HKCU I have to be logged on as the user in quetion. I could write a script, but every user has a different MyDocuments folder.

Where does Windows 2003 get this values to put on

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders\Personal

for very user. Is this value in NTUSER.DAT and I just cannot change it from my account?

Thanks a lot,
Javier.

The registry key controlling it is in user shell folders the value is named "personal"

User shell folders is deep in hkcu. I am not at a computer but can look up the exact path for you when I get on the office if you have trouble finding it.

You can change the value for users as they log onto the server with a script or seed it on the default profile on your ts servers.

Hi all,

I would like to know how can I change the user MyDocuments folder in a TS environment, without actually logging as the user. I do not want to use folder redirection.

Thanks,
Javier.
