I need to move roaming profiles with 3 folders (User, Home, and MSOutlookData)to a different drive on one of our servers....in an AD environment. I have never done this before, would appreciate any tips/tricks/cautions that anyone has to offer

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

I would create the new folder area and create a new group policy. Use a test user and move from the old group policy to the new policy. Then change his home folder path on the profile tab.

    That was what we ended up doing - tested on dummy users, then moved out the 'live' users after we were sure of the results. Thanks
