I have most of my teachers on mandatory profiles, and a handful on roaming profiles (IT teachers mainly), i want to clear cached profiles on logoff...easily done using the "Delete cached copies of roaming profiles" option.
But, i now want to clear mandatory profiles but not the roaming ones. Does anyone have a solution to that?

- Rep Power
A couple of ways I can think of, depending on what you would actually like to do.
Firstly, if you add a user to the 'Domain Guests' group, their profile folder will be automatically deleted from the device on logoff, which is nice, and handy.
Secondly, through GPO, Computer Configuration, Administrative Templates, System, User Profiles - 'Delete cached copies of roaming profiles' and 'Delete user profiles older than a specified number of days on system restart' could both be useful to you.
I tend to have all of my student accounts in 'Domain Guests' so that their profiles never clog up machines. And then also on student PCs (GPO applied only to student computers) I have also set the above two options so that staff profiles are also removed from these machines, if not immediately, at least eventually!
It's not necessarily the solution you are looking for, but hope it helps?
