Hi Guys,

I need to move about 20 users roaming profiles from the C: drive on a server to the D: due to space contraints. I thought it would just be a case of moving the folders and then editing the user profile in AD to point to the new location but a few people are talking about registry edits.
Does anyone know of a step by step guide so that i don't miss anything off  ?

Cheers
