I am not sure I undersand the question, the OST has always been stored in the users profile, it's never been stored in My Pictures.

Click Start then Run then type regedit and press enter
Navigate to HKEY_ CURRENT_USER\Software\ Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook
Right click on that Outlook key and select New --> Expandable String Value
Name the new value ForcePSTPath
Double click the ForcePSTPath value and change it to the default path which should be...
%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

You will need to make this change logged in as the user that is being affected.
