Outlook 2010 turn off Cached Exchange Mode for roaming users

Dear Sir,

We had Windows 7 pro workstations with Microsoft Outlook 2010. These workstations let the user login as roaming profile. Each users logon to those workstations will create a Windows user profiles. Once they start using Outlook 2010, the cache file .ost will be built and grow up. So dozen users will make the C:\ drive (i.e. 256 SSD MB) full.

Can we change all the roaming profile users do not use the exchange cached mode?

Please advise.

With regards,

Outlook 2010 how to prevent .ost files
Brandon DubeConnect With a Mentor Director of ITCommented:
You will want to use group policy to make each of the roaming computers use non-cached mode by default. You can download the outlook 2010 admx files from Microsoft here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=18968

Using these and group policy structure apply a policy to these computers that makes users default to non-cached mode when they login. You'll probably need to go back and clean up the existing large OSTs once you implement this though.
