Is there any way to make it so after a user logs off the profile folder is removed from documents and settings on a local computer? Right now, i'm using folder redirection, so the documents and desktop are linked to the server, anyway...thank you in advance, adam

Why don't you just setup roaming profiles and let this automatically take care of all the profiles for you? No need to do folder redirection if you want the entire profile on the server...

hi, thank you very much. The reason I don't want to use roaming profiles for this setup is because each group shares the same desktop and documents...is there anything in group polocy that would allow you to delete the cache, i'd rather not have to set that at every computer and set that...

thank you, adam
