Alternative to roaming profiles for laptops
Posted on 2010-09-22
We are constantly having issues with laptop users and there roaming profiles backing up correctly. whether it be because they start shutting down there computer and immediately eject it from the docking station or they have been gone for some time and when the come back it doesnt sync up correctly.
I am wondering if there is a working alternate solution. Folder redirection wont work because then they need to be connected to vpn to access there data and using microsofts sync utility is a disaster.
My boss is very adamant that they should not have to worry about backing up there own data and we should be making sure it is done for them.
i was thinking some kind of robocopy script for when there in the office they can just double click it and copy desktops and documents to the server.
if anyone has any suggestions i would greatly appreciate it. thank you!
