I'm wondering what's the best way to recreate a 2008 TS profile. In the past with 2000/2003, you could just rename the TS profile folder and the local folder in c:\docs&settings, and it would create a new one next login.
That doesn't seem to be the case in 2008. If I rename the ts profile and the local folder in c:\users, it logs on with a temporary profile, as it can't locate the original profile. This means a new profile is not created.h

Go to

1. Control Panel
2. User Accounts
3. On the left hand side go to "Configure advanced user profile properties" this may take a few minutes to load or longer depending on how many users use the Terminal Server.
4. Delete the user profile from the list as necessary.
