    Roaming profiles give excessive network overheads, create extra work and are EVIL!!
    We have roaming profiles for all here, does that make me evil? :twisted:
    We just used GP to redirect the desktop as well. That with Access Based Enumeration means we can customise it quite a lot.

    Re: Saving to Desktop

    The problem with "banning" saving to desktop is that some software wants to do it and defaults to "desktop" and some users are just used to it and "default" to it.

    We now redirect desktop to a network folder (homedrive\desktop) for all users. This has saved quite a lot of work when people manage to lose stuff (because if it's not in n:\ then it's probably in n:\desktop)

    We're looking at redirecting application data as well - this removes another component of roaming profiles which can be huge and moves us to a situation where staff can easily roam between machines.

    Re: Saving to Desktop

    My 2 pence worth....

    No roaming profiles, re-directed My Docs, Pics, Music, Videos and Favorites.

    No Desktops for anyone - Not even me!

    All apps have there preferences set in the Default User Profile (this includes toolbars, open/save dialog boxes, addin's for excel and no setups for office, etc, etc.

    Logon times - between 10 and 15 seconds.

    Dynamic Local User - creates profile on login and destroys it on logout.

    Nice and clean..........

    And a consistant user interface across the board.
