Hello @RogerRoger-2394

All you have to do is make sure everyone is logged off, reboot the server once to ensure no files are locked, move all profiles to the other hard drive with permissions intact (robocopy), go into HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList and change the drive path on everyones folder.
