Transferring profiles from Windows 2008 RDP server to Windows 2012 RDP server

We have an existing Windows 2008 R2 RDP server with 20 user profiles.  When we configured the 2008  server, we created one drive partition (C) as we didn't want to run into space issues on the system drive.  We are now going to migrate to a new 2012 RDP server that has a system drive (C) and a D drive.  We would like to put the profiles on the server in the D drive, not the C drive as there is much more space available.  Ultimately our goal would be to be able to copy the existing profiles to the new server but would be ok with creating all new profiles and copying the data into each profile.  How can we accomplish this?

If you want to keep the settings then it's probably best to use roaming profiles. That would ensure the registry settings follow the user. If it's an active directory domain, then it's fairly easy to convert the profiles to roaming.

If we do that, won't the profiles automatically end up on the C (system) drive?  That is what we are trying to prevent.  We want the profiles to be on the D drive on the new server.

We ended up re-imaging the server to just have a C drive so we didn't have to deal with putting them on a D drive.

We found that it was easier to start from scratch with just a C drive.
