Outlook profile is on wrong drive

One of our users has their Outlook profile on the E: drive at their company. That user no longer has access to the E: drive due to change in policy. How would I move their Outlook profile over to the now Z: drive?

Rebuilding his profile did not work. I am thinking there is something in the registry that needs changed, or even something on the server, but I cannot pinpoint it.

Thoughts?

You can change the OST Path with this regedit

Outlook 2013

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Outlook
Expandable String Value: ForceOSTPath
Value data: full path you want to use

Outlook 2010

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook
Expandable String Value: ForceOSTPath
Value data: full path you want to use

Outlook 2007

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook
Expandable String Value: ForceOSTPath
Value data: full path you want to use

Outlook 2003

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook
Expandable String Value: ForceOSTPath
Value data: full path you want to use

And here you will find a nice tutorial

You can check this location in the registry:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles.

You will see a list of profile and click on the one you want and export it.

Neither of these worked. It was a permissions issue.
