I have a network with all users using roaming profiles, some users have a 7 gig profile, is there any tool that I can use to restrict the size of the profiles or file types.

Thanks

you can configure the disk quotas on the disk where you have stored the user's profiles.

Dear Sid_F,
I agree with Phadke. With Windows 2003 R2 you have disk quota at folder level. This will be of gr8 help to you

Cheers!

Sid_F,
You can also set the profile size using GPO. The Limit profile size policy setting is available in the User Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\User Profiles node of the Group Policy Object Editor

I think that you need to figure out whey the profiles are so large and setup folder redirection!

One time i ran into really large profiles. It was because the business had very large pst files in their outlook setup. They should haved used an exchange server.
