Redirect My Documents (local non-GPO setting)

Last Modified: 2012-06-22
We need to redirect My documents to the D drive on our workstation image.  I do not see a way to do this locally.  I know this can be done easily via GPO - but this is something we want to avoid.

If you know of a way to do this locally - so that each user automatically receives the redirected settings, please let me know.  

Again this is for an image - and the goal is to have it setup to where we do not have to manually redirect the My Documents folder for each user as part of the post burn process.
