I used to use roaming profiles for users but have switched to using folder redirection to prevent documents from being cached in c:\users on the Windows 7 Professional workstations. Folder redirection went just fine with GPO and I have Documents, Pictures, Favorites and Desktop being stored in each user's secured home folder. I went into all user accounts and cleared the profile path which used to point to \\servername\profiles$\%USERNAME%.
Even though I have cleared this out of the user account and deleted the roaming profiles, each morning I still see roaming profiles being created in the share again. Why is this and what am I missing? I know the Windows 7 registry tracks where the roaming profile is, but I'd think this would reset the next time the user logs in and this would clear out based on it not being a property of the user account any longer.
