    What about the c:\documents and settings\users\local settings ?
    Does this become part of the roaming profile ? Sometimes the temp folder in there can become very large. Is it necessary to redirect this locally or do roaming profiles ignore this?

    @CyberNerd - by default local settings does not roam but you can specify exceptions in the GP to preven certain folder from roaming.

    How to prevent folders from roaming with a profile in Windows Server 2003

    somewhere on these forums there is also some .adm files that allow you to redirect favorites to the user documents folder and I think that I made one that could redirect the My Music and My Pictures ones seporatly as well but I can't find either at the moment.

    Here is an old school ADM to redirect Favorites via GP to a folder, useful when switching to 7 also as you can unify such things during a switchover.

    Noticed the words Application Data on the original post, that's the one that might cause some problems with XP and the Adobe products of doom!

    Also note as far as I understand it XP roaming Appdata always writes to the server as it's in use...

    Should AppData be Redirected or Left in the User Profile? | sepago

    Might be worth bearing in mind. Also if you set up the shares use the Traverse folder permission as that has been mooted as a fix for the Adobe \ Appdata issue

    That link is RDS specific, and also 2k8/vista/7 specific, not XP/2003.

    Also, which Adobe products have issues? We don't have any installed on staff computers - except Adobe Reader/Flash Player/Shockwave Player.

    Think the point he makes is still relevant on PCs though, see this rather nice article towards the bottom

    Best Practice: Roaming Profiles and Folder Redirection (a.k.a. User State Virtualization)

    I think 7 splits Appdata into a local and roaming section which works out more efficient but XP doesn't make the differentiation between them

    Adobe product of doom would mainly be Adobe Reader although some others do it as well. Iirc 9.4 works OK but X doesn't, although you might be able to get around it with the correct folder permissions as Adobe stuff wants to be able to see every folder down the tree in order to get to the Appdata folder. I'd use the permissions from the Microsoft article below anyway so should be OK...
