User profile path
Posted on 2004-10-23
I am not a newbie under W2K, but this problem keeps me struggling. All MS Knowledge base articles I found are either obscure or don't work:
I am on a W2K system and I have to create new user accounts once in a while.
Now by default all user profiles get created under %USERPROFILE% which is usually C:\Documents and Settings\
When I specify a profile path in the Profile tab for that user one would assume that would change the path ... no way in a Microsoft product :-(
The reason why I want to change the path is that I can't have all the user files on the C: drive. There is a D: drive available for the users, but since email, desktop, My Documents ... just everything goes to C: I always have a full C: drive and plenty of space on D:.
Does anybosy know a reliable way in W2K to create the user's profile on a diffrent drive, a diffeent path?
