Dear gareth629,
You can use folder redirection and it can be configured via GPO

Refer this article : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/232692
Instead of using UNC path you can use Local path like D:\users like that. Check whether it helps you

Cheers!

How are your profile paths set up at the moment? If everyone is set to \\server\sharename\%username%, you can create a new directory on the D drive and give it the same share name (after unsharing the original directory). This results in the location in all of your user's accounts still being correct (Windows won't care if \\server\share is on C: or D: as long as the server name and share name have not changed).

Then backup the profiles directory and restore them to the new directory.  Ensure that the permissions and the shares are captured as part of the backup.  If the shares can't be included using your backup program, export them from the registry:
HKLM\ SYSTEM\ CurrentControlSet\ Services\ lanmanserver\ Shares.

folder redirection is the short term fix.

Rebuilding is the medium range fix.

Replacing is the longer term fix.

Sorry if this is bad news,

Good Luck,
