    Defaulting All profiles to save to...

    We are due to be getting around 30 PCs to put in the classrooms for the teachers and I am looking to set up some default profiles for the staff, and hopefully have it so that when they open up my documents it saves to "U:\" rather than "C:\My Documents", and does NOT give the option to have a roaming profile. I can do it individually for each PC and each user, but that would take forever so I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to set it up with a group policy or via a VBS or Batch script?

    Any help is much appreciated.

    You need to change the setting in Active Directory, no need for a script.

    in the home drive section under Profile when clicking a user, you choose your letter U in your case and then put in something like


    You also need to make sure you have folder redirection set to redirect My Documents to the home drive, this will then ensure every time a user select my docs, it will be your server rather than a local docs.
