Where are users registry setting kept between RDS sessions.

Hello All.

Our employee work on Virutal RDS Sessions hosted on Windows Server 2012 R2.
I have a question about the registry and what happens to the registry for each person when they log off and the session is closed.
Is a copy retained somewhere for that user or is completely deleted and re-created when every time a new session is started?

I'm curious as we have an issue with an entry in the registry being saved twice for a certain program, but his is only affecting the same 5 employees and no one else. Their registry entries must be saved somewhere for the issues to persist between different sessions.

Any assistance that you can provide would be great.

Kind regards

Matt

Every user of your RDS server has their registry stored in their profile; %UserProfile%\Ntuser.dat

If you are using roaming profiles take a look in their roaming profile directory or c:\users\<username> dir on your RDS server.
