I'm trying to setup google drive to work on my university's lab computers. The set up we have uses a virtual disk and a dummy user. Whenever a user logs in, windows is preloaded with a fresh image and we mount a network drive on H: and when they log out, everything is blown away for the next user.
When we install google drive, it defaults the drive folder to My Documents (which we mapped to H:) but it also adds an application data folder under C:\Documents and Settings\username\local Settings (and I presume the equivalent path in win7 which we have a team testing for roll out in the fall). This folder keeps a record of the file changes and google drive wont work without it. But since its on the C: drive, it gets deleted at logout. I need a way to move it to the H:
The second issue is with the authentication. When a user logs in, google drive stores the credentials somewhere in the registry but I can't seem to find all the pieces. We would need these keys to be reloaded into the registry at login and exported to the H: at logout to simulate a stable configuration.
Can't seem to find a simple answer and I don't really want to write a custom app using the API to replace the google drive client on our campus machines.
