I have have a user who keeps receiving the following error.
"you have exceeded your profile storage space. before you can log off you need to move some items from your profile to network or local storage"

This users profile is set to local profile on his XP machine, no other users have this problem.
How can I resolve this, this error prevents the user form logging off.

This is a group policy setting. Go to Active Directory or on the local security policy settings and drill down to:
User Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > User Profiles:
Limit profile size = Disabled

I just changed to disabled it was set to not configured.
I am not sure why this would only affect one user out of so many?

Any ideas?
I will test now and respond on the resutls.

This must be a setting to his personal account only on his local machine. However, if you disable that feature on a domain level, it should also disable this feature for the effected user.

If you want to do it for that local user on that computer only, do this:

Go to Start > Run > Type: gpedit.msc

Drill down to:
User Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > User Profiles:
Limit profile size = Disabled

For the record, the Windows XP SP3 machine in front of me right now is on a domain and you can't edit this settings in Group Policy on the local computer (at least to a computer joined to a domain) like suggested above because under User Configuration > Administrative Templates there is no System area to expand
