My user files for terminal server are being stored on the C drive which is now full. I need to move the c:\user\... files to a d: drive on the same server. Need best procedure and settings to redirect users to new location for terminal server users.

YOu can get away with creating a SYMLINK to the new directory and never have to touch or mess with Group Policy or Terminal Server configuration

Download junction.exe (which is a sysinternals program FROM microsoft)

I always download it into a folder that is part of the system path OR I add a path to the PATH environment variable, but you can download it to your user folder if you want to.

Open a Command Prompt and navigate to the directory where junction was extracted. Once there type in junction.exe and press enter, select AGREE on the license and the help menu will scroll by. Now, this is VERY important.

COPY all of the current data from the ORIGINAL location to the TARGET location. SO for instance.

C:\user folders\

create a driectory
D:\user folders\

Move ALL the data under user folders from the C: drive to the D: drive and once that is EMPTY...DELETE the c:\user folders\. Now in the command prompt type:

junction -s c:\user folders d:\user folders

You will now see the C:\user folders directory again and when you double click on it you see everything in there. Except, the data is being stored on the D: drive now.
