I need to know what registry key for both windows xp and 7 would I edit or add so I could simply change the default save location for itunes.  By default it goes to the users my music folder in my documents.  Problem is we redirect the my documents folder to our file server and now it is getting cluttered with mp3's, .mp4's, and wmv's.  Since we have about a few hundred users with itunes (iphone is our company phone), I would like to simply deploy the adjustment via group policy and the best way is if I edit the registry.  Does anyone know where in the registry I would have to edit to adjust this location.

I Would start with these 2 locations then search for iTunes in the registry and see what you get....


HKEY_CURRENT_USER\AppEvents\EventLabels\iTunes_Complete
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Apple Computer Inc.\iTunes

that would not work either, the my music folder is already in a redirected folder and the folder redirection of a subfolder whose parent is redirected would be a mess

The location at which iTunes keeps music is not stored in the registry.

The answer is here, but it sure as hell ain't easy:
