You can do it with registry editor:

First I really recommend to backup the registry before messing around with it.

go to Start -> Run->regedit

then go to :

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Printers\DefaultSpoolDirectory

double click on it and change it to the directory that you want.

That should work
