I am using roaming profiles & Folder Redirection with Server 2003 & XP. Everything seems to be working fine except when a user deletes a file, log off, log back on - the file is back!
I took a look at the below post:
I disabled offline files but it didn't solve my problem. It only got rid of the annoying blue swirlies on the icons and a message that was coming up every once in a while that a machine was suddenly offline. While that is all well and good, my users are getting downright MAD that they can't delete files from their desktop. Many of them use the desktop as a temporary staging area for files used during the day and deleted at the end of the day so now their desktop is filling up and they can't delete files.
If I want to get something to STAY deleted, I have to delete it from the desktop (which deletes it off the server) then I have to go into the Documents & Settings folder and find the matching profile on the computer and delete it there.
I had thought that was the point of a roaming profile!?!? To not have to worry about anything local on the machine.
I would assume that deleting the local profile when the user logs off using a GPO would take care of the problem but I am worried about what happens if the server goes down or something happens the user can't work.
Any suggestions? Please?
