Changing user's home folder via GPO - question

Dear Experts!
I have terminal server 2003 with 20 clients. All user's home directory is located on drive C:\ of my server.
Because I'm soon out of free space, I want to change my GPO so that all home folders will reside on drive D:\
My question is, what will happen to all files currently located on drive C:\ ? Is there a way to create some sort of redirect to the new drive?

Many thanks in advance!!!

Why not manually move the files over to D: and then set the GPO?

Hi Kutyi, I just thought maybe there's a more "elegant" way to perform this, although currently this seems to be my only "known" way of doing this.

I'll keep this post open for a couple of hours just in case someone has another possible way to accomplish this.

Thanks again!
