Change default profile folder Location


Some times we can´t control what users have in profiles so we need to avoid that the %systemroot% be with no space available.

We can change the default location to another disk. To do it we can change in registry, “ProfilesDirectory” Location.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList]

Profile_reg

Just change it to the location that you pretend such as “d:\users”.

Hope that this can be useful.
