Searching for a way to place either C:\Users on a network drive or automatically have favorites , desktop and my documents placed on a network drive , for new users on the computer.

When i tried to change in "Local_machine\software\microsoft\windows nt\current version\profilelist" i get User Profile Service could not log you on.

I want to find a way of having it created on this network disk without Group Policys.

Ahh, just read it properly. I dont think there is a way to do this without using Group Policy. You could try and use a script to rename the desktop folder, then create a folder to use it as a mount point to your home drive (but I have a feeling your can mount to a network drive, it has to be local).

First thing, dont put C:\Users on the network.

Second, have a look at group policy and folder redirection. You can setup a policy to redirect the users Desktop, Favs, My Docs etc to a network folder (home drive for example). Quite easy to do if the computers are in a domain.

The first 3 link should cover what you need to know in order to do a folder redirect.
