SBS Netlogon

I have a NT server running Backoffice and SBS (Small Business Server) It is recomended that you set up users using the SBS console, however the default path for each user is always on the C:\Users Shared Folder directory. I would like the default directory to be U:\Users Shared Folders instead of C:\Users Shared Folder. Reason for is if I have to reformat the C: drive (Where the OS resides) I would not damage the Users files.

How do I change the Default path from C:\Users Shared Folder  to U:\Users Shared Folder?

thanks

You should always move user files via the SBS console - there's a wizard for doing this in Manage Folders/Files (I can't remember the actual title but it's one of those).  One tip though, cut and paste the actual contents of the file to a temp file first before actually moving the user folder.  There is a tendancy for the file transfer to encounter errors but this will protect the data.

The reason for using the console is your very point re Logon Scripts etc.

If I do it that way where would the Logon Script reside?

Or I don't have to worry about a Logon Scirpt.a

in your SmallBusiness folder there is a util called mvfldr.exe With the commandline: mvfldr -s users
you can move the users shared folders

I do not want to copy if I don't have to what I want to do is to change the default from C: drive to U drive.

Is this possible or I have no option to change the default drive.
