I have a backup external hard drive connected to my system. I just noticed there is a "GPOs" folder on that drive. Within that folder is manifest.xml and a bunch of policy sub-folders. How can I change the drive this is stored on?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

GPOs are stored in the Sysvol folder on domain controllers. The folder that you are referring to, appears to be a backup of GPOs, possibly creaed with the group policy management console (GPMC) or by other means.

    Ahh...that does make sense. Probably is a backup. I don't recall setting that up but maybe I did and forgot about it. Thanks for your assistance!
