I am experiencing an issue with the Windows 7 user profile that didn't exisit for me with Win XP

I adopt full roaming profiles to a share on a dedicated fileserver. The issue im having is that the Outlook OST althought located in C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook seems to want to roam at login and logoff whereass in XP the OST would stay local.

Some of my users OST files are 10GB+ and this is causing considerable delay during logon/off process normally resulting in profile copy errors?

I cant seem to find a way to sort it so any help appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
