Roaming profiles get corrupted resulting in the ntuser.dat file to be 256 K instead of what it used to be.

I don't particularly like roaming profiles but I have to deal with them. This is a general question. I suspect if a network connection has lower bandwidth and the local profile is not releasing right that this causes the roaming profiles to become corrupted and when I look on the server at their profiles the ntuser.dat file is 256 K in size when it used to be much larger. We curtail quite a few things from not roaming. We do have people that sometimes place a large amount of files on their desktop and that roams with them. I routinely need to contact them to get the size of their local profiles down. I heard that we could run UPH Clean everytime people log off and that could help performance. Once their profile is corrupted I rename their roaming profile and have them log off and rename any local profiles and have them start over. I am just curious if anyone is doing things differently. I am sorry that I do not have more info on our NAS servers as we have a server and storage team than handles them and I don't know all the details of the infrstructure we have in place. I am new to this forum and want to also see what kind of a resource this can be for me. Thank you.
