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.

Thanks

the registry key you have to delete is the one ended with  .bak
