    Just interested really - I've been playing with them a bit and found them quite acceptable - may even leave them as is. I may [ if possible ] just move the teachers to Roaming and leave the students as Local....

    We used to do this - but the students got wise to the fact that pulling the network cable out during the login process gave them more access than they should have had. - On super mandatories now - and its much better.

    We are using super mandatory profiles with redirection for the students and local profiles with redirection for the teachers. Much quicker than our old method of everyone using redirected profiles.

    At our school we have a script to check if certain network drives have been mapped and if not assume the pupil has unplugged the cable, gives them a scary dialogue message and then shuts down the machine... Infact i think the original script was found on this site somewhere...

    Re: Anyone using local profiles with Folder Redirection ?

    i set this up earlier this year as a test and due to the benefits rolled it out site wide on the circ domian. Before this migration we did a have a network management application running,

    We redirect the start menu and my docs.

    The reason for the move

    1 i wanted to save the school having to pay for third party software

    2 i needed more of a challenge

    3 if windows provided the ability to lock down the machines & the web provided resources to automate tasks then why use it.

    4 if i do google search for a microsoft software issue i encounter, i will get much more hits then if i type in the name of the network management software.
