    Hi
    I need to change the storage location of users roaming profiles. They currently reside for instance on \server1usersprofiles and I need to move them to \server2usersprofiles
    Am I correct in thinking that a simple move (accomplished by getting NTBackup to copy the folders and restoring them to a different location) and a redirect from the AD account properties will NOT work?
    I have a feeling that there is a reg key involved somewhere that tells the account where to look for its profile info. I have searched for some documentation on this issue but it seems impossible to find any sort of comprehensive answer. Does anyone have any suggestions/experience of this?
