    RMMC says the space is almost all gone, so no more saving...

    Windows says it's fine.


    Not sure if I can be bothered to try and sort it. There's only a few weeks left until we're redoing the network sans RM...

    Profile? They are stored on the same drive, so disk quota management will see both home folder and profile.

    The profile is in a separate place, it shouldn't count towards the disk quota.

    Le EDIT: Hmm... the .V2 profile is about the same size as the missing space. But the RM carp is set to use the regular [non .V2] one.

    There's also the issue that this .V2 is about 6x bigger than everyone else's for some unknown reason.


    What a mysterious jogo.

    I have hidden files turned on [on my account], I can't see anything there... Just their files.

    Le EDIT: Hidden files on + hide protected off

    Still only 63.7mb [71.4 on disk]

    If this is a CC4 installation with the shared drives and the user areas on the same logical drive; anything a user puts in the shared area will count towards their quota.

    Just run a quick test on my CC4 network, and can confirm that the space taken by the profile is included in the used space reported by RMMC

    hmm... interesting.

    Ours is set for the old \\[server]\RMTeacherProfiles\[username] profile, which is about 500kb.


    Le EDIT: huh, a folder it isn't told to use and nobody can make smaller... contributes to the space.


    Moved it out, reset the profile. Back to ~500kb. Keeping the >25mb old one, just in case.

    Oh CC4... you so silly.

    I have seen this a few times before and it was the profiles folder. If you go to the network drive where the profiles are stored for that group of users, you will see there are 2 folders for each user e.g jbloggs.v1 and jbloggs.v2

    The V2 folder is the one that is used if you are using Win 7 or Vista but isn't the one that's displayed (afaik) when you click on the profile button in the RMMC. Check this folder to see if there are any large files hanging around.

    I assume it's using the FSRM in Windows. Sometimes it stops updating used space and needs to be turned off and on again.

    if you're using 64bit clients, the profile in the RMMC isn't the one that's used. The system creates a .v2 profile and uses that.

    Some 64, some 32... I'm trying to get it uniform, but bugets are tight.

    IIRC this user has a 64bit computer in their class.

    Doesn't explain why their profile got so bloated but nobody else's did...

    I am so looking forward to the Summer "holidays" when we get rid of RM and move over to our new domain. It's been hard work setting it up, and I'm asking questions here daily, but as every support call I've had with RM over the last 2-3 years has been to do with one RM component or another, I don't think I'll miss much.
