We use Novell NetWare 4.8 as our directory service and Windows 2000 Pro on our machines. We do not have Active Directory. We want to redirect the Application Data folder in C:Documents and Settingsuser for all of our users.
What we want is when we install a software program for a user, instead of the applications information going to the C:Documents and SettingsuserApplication Data folder, we want it to go straight to S:Windows NT 5.0 Workstation ProfileApplication Data folder, S: being the users mapped home directory, which is mapped for all our users via a login script with NetWare.
Using your logon script, change the path in the HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders. The REG_EXPAND_SZ value is AppData. Don't forget to copy the user's existing Application Data folder to the new location.
