A question's been boggling my mind for a while now,

How to properly move users home folder on computers that are members of active directory from drive C:\ to D:\

I should also mention that GPO home folder method didn't work.

Registry solution:

Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList

Change ProfilesDirectory from %SystemDrive%\Users to D:\Users

Remember to give full permissions to all accounts for D:\Users
