I have a windows 2000 server and a mix of 98 and XP workstations on my network. I have recently given myself a roaming profile for convenience however it has backfired quite a bit and I wonder if their is a way to improve this. I have no plans on giving anyone profiles as they are resource hogs, space and bandwidth as well as time, however it is a pain to redo all my settings on every computer and like having them 'roam' with me. None of the workstations were affected by this except the XP workstations. That is to say the XP workstations a log onto. The ones I don't stay unchanged but after logging on and off of an XP workstation at least one time when any user logs off it tries to sync my profile. I'm assuming it's trying to download and cache my profile for later use but I am not sure. At any rate I want it to be disabled since for one it fails saying it can't access the file and two it's slow and useless. The other problem I have with my profile is on curtain computers it takes a long time for it to sync, handing on the first process until it finally synchronizes which takes all of 2 or 3 seconds. This escalates my first issue which makes it even more of an issue. If anyone can solve these to problems, or even can help to improve my position.
