asked on

temp profiles

I believe these are temp profiles. I just do not know too much about them.
Have Windows 2008 R2 with 17 remote desktop users.

Some users log in and under \users\username I see their directories including desktop.
Three users have many folders with numbers like
\users\username1
\users\username1.servername.000
\users\username1.servername.001
\users\username1.servername.002
etc up to .197
each folder only has one folder called AppData

How do I get rid of this and have the correct login profile like the other users?

Try to remove the local profiles (rename them or move to another location).

Check the permissions on the user profile (c:\users\username) and it might have lost the permissions. Compare them with the other working user profile.
