We have an SBS 2003 with users having roaming profiles. Their profiles are stored on a drive on the server. This works just fine.

One user found it took an age to log on. When we looked at his profile, it had lots of videos and was 70GB in size.

He didn't need/want the videos so we deleted them and he was able to log on as normal.

This worked for a few weeks and the same thing happened again - the videos which we had deleted had come back... we have deleted them again but why do they keep coming back?

I don't think there is a way for them to come back, I would look into how they got there in the first place maybe there is something the user does.

1 are you using dfs- distributed file system?
2 any for of scheduled backup exec?
3 do those returns happen in specific  time scale - any pattern
4 delete profile (backup data) recreate it in different ou if possible or under different logon name.

We're not using DFS or backup exec.

These have only returned once and I have deleted the whole profile, so fingers crossed it won't happen again.
