    had all sorts of niggling issues with folder redirection due to slightly incorrect permissions, basically getting the system to create the users folders and actually populating them correctly.

    only moving my docs desktop fav's app data has a habit of getting massive

    Is it the same even on 7? In theory the locallow folder was meant to sort that but I wouldn't be surprised if poor app coding (cough Adobe cough) hasn't used it correctly...

    Also this means a pupil can't alter the toolbars in office some strange way and have it follow them around, forcing me to have to delete the apps data folder in their area.
    Problem is that I and other staff have Office set up just so, particularly Outlook, and staff profiles are some of the worst for bloating so if I can get them mandatory for size/speed I would love to

    oh, yes. I do the same for staff as they only tend to use 1 or 2 machines for document creation. They may have to configure office twice but that's all. Demonstrating to pupils, they need an office that looks and runs like theirs anyway. (Teacher Stations)
