I have Go Global server application (from GraphOn.com) running on Windows 2003 server (GG). (Go Global is an equivalent to Windows terminal service.) When user log on to the GG using Go Global client, it automatically creates a user profile. One of the files is called NTuser.dat. Recently some users report performance issue. After some tests, the root cause is related to the profile.
When I create a new profile, the application performs well on Go Global server. When I use the old user profile, the performance is very bad. I even copy the NTuser.dat file from the new profile into the old profile, the performance is also good. This means the NTuser.dat is the root cause of the performance issue.
Q#1. What is NTuser.dat for?
Q#2. Is it possible to modify or just browse the NTuser.dat file? I like to compare the NTuser.dat file of the old and new profile to find out the difference.
Q#3. How to 'retain' the user configuration from the old profile and make it into a new profile?
