  • How.to.clean.up.user.profile

    I'd like to know how to clean up user profile @ the workstation every time user logs off. Thanks!


    I got it to work by using delprof.exe. Thanks

    you can set a policy:

    computer configuration --> administrative templates --> system --> user profiles --> delete cached copies of roaming profiles..

    i assume you're using roaming profiles..

      Actually I don't have roarming user accounts because there are many students and our network is kinda slow.

      So I thought of the solution to schedule delprof to delete user profiles that are inactive for more than 2 days on clients.

      What do you think ?

          Possible on the server side?

          Is this a possibility on the server side as well? Our server is getting bogged down (and filling up way too rapidly with garbage) Mostly IE cache and such. Is there any way to limit the cache (or clean it off of the servers copy of the roaming profile that downloads?)
          Thanks

                  Local settings folder is stored on the local computer only even with/without roaming profiles.

                  Hence the term "Local" :P
