good point, yes i see in OE and O how to move the data store location. the problem with this, at least as i understand it, is there are additional security features applied to \documents and settings\ based locations which means when i move the location of the O/OE file store i will loose these security features.
what i want is all the security features inherent in \documents and settings\ yet i want to relocate that tree for the user's data onto some drive letter other than C: given when windows goes bad the C: drive mostly will have to be wiped and remade. then
i want the ability to knit back together that user's \documents and settings\ data tree into their "new" account on the machine.
lets make it easier to get the user back to their data after windows goes bad and the C: drive has to be rebuilt.
