Need to redirect Profiles for use with Drive Vaccine
Posted on 2011-10-11
I have a little bit of a doozy here and not sure if there is a way to do this. I own a Managed Services company and I want to use Drive Vaccine on my client's computers so that my workload will be minimized. Drive Vaccine is one of the programs that will restore the computer to a pre-setup configuration everytime you reboot the machine.
The only thing I can't figure out how to do is get the user profiles into the 'safe' drive that it creates so that the profiles don't get reverted on reboot. Unfortunately, and for reasons beyond me, they only offer to move the Desktop and Documents folders on the install of Drive Vaccine. Which leaves me with the Application Data and Favorites folders being reverted on reboot. Which leaves Outlook out of the question.
Here's where I am with it:
1) I can move the Outlook files to a different folder where they will be safe
2) Roaming Profiles (I REALLY want to avoid doing this since it's for all of my clients and I only see more headaches down the road which is the opposite reason that I'm installing Drive Vaccine)
3) Something like Junction Link Magic but the only problem is that I can't get it to redirect the profiles folder since it has to be empty before redirecting it.
I'm at a little bit of a loss right now and any help would be greatly appreciated!
