Problems with deleteing cached copies of roaming profiles
Posted on 2004-09-15
I have the following setting in my group policy :
Delete cached copies of roaming profiles - Enabled
However, the profiles are not getting deleted at user logoff. Instead they are not getting deleted until the machine is rebooted.
I found this note on Microsoft's site:
If a profile is marked for deletion at logoff, when the reference count drops to zero, it will be unloaded and deleted. In the event that the application never releases the registry key, Windows XP will delete all profiles marked for deletion at the next machine boot.
Note that if a roaming user logs onto back onto a machine that failed to unload her profile previously, and the profile has still not unloaded, the user will receive the currently loaded profile. If the user has logged onto another computer in the meantime, and made changes to their profile, the changes will not be available on the machine with the “locked” profile.
However, there was no solution posted.
Additionally I know that the files that are locked in the profile are these 2:
Any ideas as to what program is locking these files?
