We redirect the application data folder to the server using folder redirection and then use a default profile in the netlogon folder to provide basic application settings. The desktop and start menu is provided by using folder redirection as well. We only give staff a redirected profile the students get a new profile at each logon which is much faster and lower load on the server.
We use this in our logon script to change the faves location
Code:WSHShell.RegWrite "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders\Favorites", "U:\Favorites", "REG_EXPAND_SZ" WSHShell.RegWrite "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders\Favorites", "U:\Favorites", "REG_SZ"
That's odd, that usually implies that a process is holding the files open e.g spyware progs and the like. Unless it's those pescy java temp files that are created with only the users permissions on so admins and system can't delete them, in that case you have to take ownership then delete them.logon locally in safe mode
Some apps can make profiles can fly up, I tested out Second Life on my office PC and it sent the profile up over 1GB
Mandatory profiles for students is much better imo...
