How to move user profiles from C:\USERS to D:\USERS

Hello,
I have a windows 2008 terminal server with about 15 users.   I originally created a 150GB system partition (C) and a large 800GB data partition (D).    The users are putting tons of data on their desktop, outlook, etc.    Though I could approach this administratively and get them to put all data in their user folders on the D drive (already redirected my documents to their user folder on D) and redirect outlook, etc.  

My question is how can I move their user profiles from C to D?   I have done this before with windows 2003 via the registry, but haven't been able to do that with vista or windows 2008.  Any ideas?

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
