Windows 7: Setting users default data path

Setting users default data path

Hey guys, (again)

I want to know if this is possible, I want by default have users data safe on to a different drive, so basically when I create a user, their Music, pictures, goto U<USERNAME> but their appdata folders and stuff stay on C drive, like this they will be able to login if something happens to external drive, also like this data is backed up!

I use WIin7 Ultimate,

Thanks..

He is something interested I found maybe you guys can explain, in Windows 7 (pro and higher only) if you open local users and groups (lusmgr.msc) and go to users folder> right click on a user>properties>then go to the profile tab you see something called Home Folder

what does this setting do here?
