During the pool creation are you putting the user data on a separate disk.
It is not supposed to be on the OS disk.
Yes I have created a 5 gb disk.

A new message was posted in the thread "User profile on data disk not working":
Author : vmsf
How did you "notice" that the My Documents folder is not redirected to the data disk? Just by comparing the contents of the folders in Windows Explorer? Or did you check the properties of the My Documents and note that the Target Folder Location does not point to the user data disk?
You're not using roaming profiles are you? From my testing, it appears that you can't use roaming profiles in conjunction with a user data disk (not sure why you would either - see my post http://communities.vmware.com//message/1180001#1180001). The roaming profile that redirects the My Documents folder to a UNC path overwrites the absolute path to the locally attached user data disk.
If I go to Documents and the My Music, the path is on the C-Drive.
I figured it out..
The problem was that the test user already had a profile on the View-Agent machine, it works with all other users, and it also started working when I deleted the profile on the VM before provisioning.
So it looks like that to use the user data disk, you need to have:
No roaming profiles configured (since roaming profiles overwrites the user data disk redirection)
No local user profile for that particular user on the machine (so best to start with a clean slate desktop OS VM)
More tips and tricks remember
I have ran into the exact same problem as the original post suggested. Are there any other suggestions? Should My Documents show it mapped to the data disk instead of c: or will it still show c:?
I don't have access to my lab right now so I can't tell you definitively, but I think that if you view the properties of My Documents and you're using a User Data Disk you will note that the path will point to the User Data Disk.
That is right. It should be on D-Drive.
