What is the quickest way to migrate terminal server 2008 user data from C:\Users to D:\Users ?

I have inherited a terminal server 2008 used by 4 users .. The C drive has a 50 gig capacity and has 300 meg free space .
There is a D drive that has 500 gb and 485 gig free .
I would like to migrate the existing users seamlessly so that the users can continue to store work and have the upside storage data that the D drive affords .. Is there a step by step guide or too which can accomplish this ?

I assume the drive is PARTITIONED - in which case, just move the existing data on D: off the drive, delete the d: drive and expand the C: drive.  RDS / Terminal Servers should NOT have small C: drives.  It's way more of a hassle trying to relocate everything.

Hi,
in most cases C drive has pagefile and sometimes help to move it to second drive. Other way should be to configure folder redirection by GPO and redirect most of folders to D drive.

The D drive is a separate drive

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Is this a RAID partitioning?  I don't think ANYONE ever made a 50 GB drive.

I'd setup folder redirection for the users.

You were right . I was given wrong information .
it is a partition .  Can I simply resize on a server 2008 r2 ?

So long as you can DELETE the D: drive (at lease temporarily), YES.
