Hi,

I have 20 users on my terminal server that have IMAP accounts and the C drive is filling up as their PST files grow.
I want to move them to the data drive and also change the registry so any new accounts added automatically go to the new location on the data drive.

I found an article that creates a registry key called ForcePSTPath
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook]
"ForcePSTPath"="C:\\folder\\folder\\folder\\folder\\folder"

I not sure how this will work on the T Server

Any ideas or better ways?

Thanks

You will need to manually move the PST files to another disk for current staff.  You should be able to do this by logging in as each staff member and moving the PST file, then reattaching the PST file in Outlook

You can then use policies to force the location of newly created PST files.

I also recommend you keep PST files on local disk as PST files via network shares is not recommended.
