    How do you move the printer spooler

    At the risk of Neg Rep I need to ask how to move a print spooler!!

    Am I right in thinking that my current server 2003 spooler on C:\Windows\system32\spool\printers

    needs to be simply reset as D:\spool\printers

    Via: Start/settings/printers/ Click server properties/Advanced

    Can it be that simple and would setting it once apply to all my printers?
