  • How to change %userprofile% ?

    How do we change %userprofile% to new driver, e.g D:\MyProfile

    C:\>echo %userprofile%
    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator


    Can change %userprofile% on driver [C]:\ to [D]:\MyProfile for both Local users and Domain users ?

    Not sure about moving the whole profile over, but you certainly can redirect portions of it easily.

    Why are you trying to move the profile?

    Also, is this machine on a network with a Domain?
    CCA: XenApp 5.0

      I want to force user Domain works in driver [D]:\ that include their profile information, document, email, printhood, ...

      [C]:\ is Windows system and Application only. Users read and execute in [C]:\, but not writting here.

      How can I move or redirect profile of users Domain to [D]:\ ?

        Its in the registry but can't for the life of me remember where -- someone will come to your aid.

        I had to do it for a TS installation and did something similar to the following:
        1) Change default location for new profiles
        2) Amend each user profile location
        3) Move existing profiles to new location (could have got around that with roaming profiles)

        Good Luck!

          first hit:
          http://www.google.com/search?q=move+...nd+settings%22


          "Unattended Setup"
          To specify a different folder for the Documents and Settings folder during installation, follow these steps:
          1. Run Winnt.exe or Winnt32.exe by using the /unattend option, and then insert the following entry into the Unattend.txt file, where z:\foldername is the path and folder name you want:
          [GuiUNattended]
          ProfilesDir = z:\foldername

          2. Install Windows. The path that you included in the Unattend.txt file is used instead of the default Documents and Settings folder.

            It works well. Very GOOD. I follow Mr. Ossian's guidance at:

            http://www.hs-lab.com/usage/faq/cont...r-profile.html
            and I need to change Home Folder>Local Path in profile of user.

            Start cmd
            D:\Documents and Settings\MyUsers>echo %userprofile%
            D:\Documents and Settings\MyUsers

            D:\Documents and Settings\MyUsers>

            All things change to driver [D]:\



            Thanks Rems, Ossian, bill_sffcu and all of you.
