How do you keep your lab images clean?
Currently we use Faronics Deep Freeze for Mac which works great but has a big price tag attached considering the number of Macs we have.
I had thought about creating a script that would run each night to delete all home directories that get created in the run of the day as well as replacing the profile for the admin user and I think this could work but this does not take care of un wanted files that user place onto the root of the Hard Drive.
I can try and see about locking down the HD with permissions but this could cause issues with Applications.
Anyways, just wondering if anyone has ever tried this?

Not sure how that would work as it would be hard to set what folders stay and go as there would so many under the library, application etc. folders

If say applications folder is on the ignore list then it wouldn't enumerate anything inside of said folder(s) so would ignore anything under applications altogether or am I missing something here ?
