Redirecting iTunes Media folder

Default location of iTunes Media Folder: C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Music\iTunes\iTunes Media
OS = Windows 7 (x64)

I would like to redirect iTunes "Media folder" to C:\iTunes. Is there a script I could use so that when a user logs in the "Media Folder" is automatically re-directed to C:\iTunes. iTunes.docx

There is a procedure for moving your iTunes media folder.  Here is the apple knowledge base article on how to do it on a Windows PC.

What you need is junction.  See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896768

Probably something like

junction  C:\iTunes  "C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Music\iTunes\iTunes Media"

Test from command line first and if it works drop it into a batch file that runs on startup.

Thanks for all the udpates. I intend to update the location of the Music Folder using Group Policy so that iTunes stores data to the local drive.
