Roaming Profile Problem

I have one user with about 500mb roaming profile.  When he log off he receives an error "Windows cannot update roaming profile.  Not enough space on disk".  On the workstation the error is logged in the event viewer.  The server has 3 gigs space left on the profile drive.  The workstation has 30 gigs.  I removed the profile from the local machines cached profiles but that did not help.  This happens on all the workstations. Any ideas?

Do you have disk quotas enabled for the user? If you do you need to have at least twice the file space available for the user to have it work

Nope, no disk quotas.

This tells me that you have to make more space available on the disk. Try to move something out so that you get a few more MB's free and try again. Remember that the system needs *2 of space of the profile to be able to save it.

I just created a new profile and did a copy paste with the old one.  It seems to work fine now.  Thanks for the help.
