    Student profile issue

    I want to ensure that students have a very small profile when logging on (mainly to ensure a fast logon for the laptops and netbooks on our wireless network) currently profiles get larger and larger due to the application data folder.

    I have tried editing the app data folder but more and more application data is added to this. I setup a read only but this then caused problems with microsoft.

    I then attempted a mandatory profile which seemed to work and remain 1.52mb profile but......
    the mapped drives on the network stopped working
    the redirected startmenu and desktop stopped working.

    Has anyone a good idea and step by step solution that would work for me?

    Many thanks
    Gareth

    How are you trying to deploy them with mandatory profiles?

    If it's just a quick option, can't you just stick them in the profiles all user folder?
