I need to be able to point the temp file location of assorted Office 2007 data files to other than the default location.  Where is this done and how?  Also,  is there something programmable or are there utilities for handling this temp location?

Thanks,
Howard

Two questions on the above solution:
1.  Are you suggesting per office application go to it's options dialog and make the chang?
2.  How can this be done via the registry?

Thanks,
Howard

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.

Hi hbash,

You need to do this one single time. Once Done then automatically all the files will save on that perticular location with out moving to the Default location.
2.  How can this be done via the registry?
Actually I can't get you regarding this one ?
Thanks.

the issue is that this needs to be set in an install not by the user having to traverse several menus and then to a network share.  it really begs to be automated, don't you think?

The registry setting for it is:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Word\Options\AUTOSAVE-PATH

Add an Expandable String Value called AUTOSAVE-PATH
Identify your Path

Hope that helps
