Moving appdata back to C without the user being logged on?

Belgian Malinois 296 Reputation points

I have a bunch of users with some significant size appdata pointing to a network drive (was done by a script few years ago before my time.) I would like to move those back to c:\users\username\appdata.
Can this be done without the user being logged on, so they do not have to wait for the copy / location change? The user network home folder resembles the user name on the local machine if it matters.

    As far as I know, if it used folder redirection policy to move appdata to network drive. We could configure folder redirection to move appdata to local.
    But if it was done by a script, I'm afraid that you may modify the script. For account permission, if you have admin permission, I consider it will be OK.
    Hope this helps and please help to accept as Answer if the response is useful.
    Best Regards,
