Hi Experts,

I work for a company where several users have thin clients and logon to a Windows Server 2008 terminal server. User profiles are configured to be stored in a share on a server. When users logon a copy of the profile is stored locally on the terminal server in c:\users\<username>.

Sinds a few weeks a version of the locally stored profile is kept. Like there are a number of folders for each user;

Is this a setting someone configured somewhere on the server? Can i configure it to store just 1 copy? Why would someone configure it to behave this way?

Thanks for the advise. Redirecting those folders will be my next step. Can you tell me more about that cleaning policy?

My question about the profile versions is not answered by the way....

Thanks guys. I'm going to rebuild the profiles. Delprof2 is a nice tool to delete the local copies of the profiles, but it didn't solve the problems.
