I'm about to start using a new CIS that has the ability to scan documents directly into a database but it requires a temp folder to be setup on the C: drive.  Normally, that would be fine but our users are using Surface Pro 3 tablets and that space will fill up quickly since the documents will all be scanned as PDFs.  What I'm trying to do is to redirect the C:\\temp folder to a server.  All tablets have Windows 8.1. Also, will this fix work on Windows 7 Pro laptops?

I never tried but I there is a way to do that and probably would work only question is what bugs will appear, try it is a insane idea but could really work.

There is a way of editing Temp location and probably will work if you set it somewhere on network drive / server but I would fear from what bugs will show after. Better explained?

Oh.  Yes.  I was able to add a folder to a server and put a shortcut on my C:\ drive and that worked as a possible fix for what I'm working on.  I just didn't know if there was a better way of doing it.
