Removing unnecessary profiles
Posted on 2008-06-13
I am responsible for the upkeep of hundreds of Windows XP machines. They are all on a WIndows Server 2003 inviroment, so each user's logon is unique and creates a new Windows Profile if that person never logged on before. Over time, because many random users log into these machines, this causes a performance problem because one machine can end up having twenty or more profiles on it. Most of them belonging to users who will not be returning to that same machine again.
So how can I manage those profiles so that the computer(s) will recognize a certain profile as not being used over a certain amount of time, say like two months, and so its deleted. This would be a great benefit.
