share the folder,
\\serverStorage\userdata\username$   ---- put the $ sign so it will be hidden
make sure that the "domain admin" and the "user" has full access  and remove everyone else

go to the user in AD
in user properties, profiles, home folders,
connect to:  U (or what ever letter) and the location of the share file..  like the one above.

let me know if you need other help man..

i'm assuming userdata is like   d:\Data Files\UserData\username$   you are only sharing the username$  so it should be    \\serverStorage\username$ ..

hope that help man..
in short no, just change the directory in the profile
agree with guru, and you may need set the folder to be shared again after relocated it
