I have recently noticed a few of our users who are saving documents into their UPM_Profile folder which is in turn increasing the size of the users profile which then causes Slow log on and Log off times. This also causes various other issues with the Profile not fully being removed from the Citrix server they log off from, which in turn means if that same user logs back into that particular server they get a temp profile.
We have put quite a bit of work into reducing profile sizes by following this best practices guide
However this mainly talks about folder redirection and basically preventing the Appdata folder (Within UPM_Profile) from copying back allot of unwanted/unrequired files and folders. This has greatly reduced profile sizes with our infrastructure but we still have the odd user who seems to have found this black hole for saving to! Anyway I've considered applying a GPO blocking users from writing to the UPM_Profile folder within their profile. However I'm concerned that if I do this it would have drastic implications to the end user experience as a lot of applications write back to the Appdata folder within the UPM_Profile folder (Eg Google Chrome) Therefore I'm left scratching my head on how to prevent users writing to this folder.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
