We use windows 2012DCs and recently we migrated from XP to Windows7
When we had XP, We are using local profiles in our network,
We are still using local profile system for all the students after we migrated to windows 7. When the users log into a PC, a freshly Profile is created under their name.
When we were having XP we had a GPO which was applied under all the ICT OUs. When this shutdown scripts was running from this policy it was deleting all the profiles and the C drive was maintained from running out of space and also a fresh profile is was created without any errors , when students log in after the PC was restarted.
Now after we migrated to windows 7, the profile doesn’t get deleted for some reasons and I can see the profiles are getting populated on the C:\users\
If I delete a profile the profile in Win7 and when the users log in again, they will get a message on the system tray “Windows cannot find the local profile and is logging you on with a temporary profile” and normally I do some registry tweaks to make it work.
Is there a way of setting this up in a different way.Our users Hard disk are 60GB and can run out of space very soon please suggest.
Thanks and any help much appreciated.
