Can I change the User Files folder location?

TOAD for Oracle 9.7.2.5
Windows XP Pro SP3

Can the default location of
“C:\Documents and Settings<username>\Application Data\Quest Software\Toad for Oracle\9.7\User Files”
be changed ?

At work we have virtual PCs (VHD) and roaming profiles, so that we can log on to any thin-client PC and get our own desktop. Unfortunately we also have strict profile space quotas too (only 30Mb). TOAD uses up 15Mb of that just with /User Files/.

I’ve tried moving the folder structure and then re-running TOAD, and selecting the renamed folder when prompted, but it just copies the files back to the default location.

How can I move the User Files folder permanently to another location (one that isn’t considered part of my roaming profile)?

Cheers
