  • How do I change "my documents" path using a login

    or a batch command?
    I need to do something generic that will change the location of users document path from x to y, and also the location of their PST files. (outlook messages and address books)

    I hope someone can help.

    thank you,

    Oren.

    its normally done through group policy, but I'm sure there's a registry setting that will change the path

      I found the registry location..

      but, it just reverts right back to the original..

      how do you do it using gp?

      thanks.

        My Documents Settings.

        Just looked at GP on my server (Win2K3) and its: -

        Windows Settings \ Security Settings \ Folder Redirection \ My Documents

        Path:\\%Homeshare%%Homepath%
        If at first you dont succeed, Google it!

          Still problems..

          I need to change only a part of an existing "my documents" path to multiple users. meaning, e.g.: \\servername\departments\engineers\moshe
          into: \\newservername\departments\engineers\moshe

          while some of the pathes are longer than others (no uniform structure of the path).

          how can I do this thru GP, without affecting anything else but the server name?

          thanks!
