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.
question for ms devs: you guys said that \mail\ will live under \documents and settings\, as a long time user of windows i have to say i have become scared of \documents and settings\ based trees because when windows goes bad, usually the C: drive has to be rebuilt. this means that
you loose your \documents and settings\. so the question is: will there be a way to locate \mail\ onto the D: drive so when windows goes bad, and has to be replaced, i dont have to worry about loosing it when C: is rebuilt.
is there a way to use aliasing somehow to get \mail\ to be located over on D:?
as a general rule i need the ability in vista and in xp to get the features of a limited user account under \documents and settings\ yet locate all that user data onto another drive letter. is this possible or going to be?
ps: if this isnt going to be possible please let me plead for this feature!
