    Hi

    I have some problems with a roaming profile for a teacher at our school and was wondering if someone could provide some assistance.

    This is how it works over here:

    Each member of staff who has a roaming profile has an entry in AD users and computers under the profile path in profile which says \servernameteacherprofile$nameofuser

    On the server where all the roaming profiles are stored there is a folder for each user and in their are the profile objects. Each user has full control to their profile folder.

    One particular user is having a right nightmare, basically his profile was so big that we had to delete it and recreate a new one. So what I did was create a new folder in the profile area with a new name and then told AD to point to that new name.

    So initially it began working and profile was small and everything was well, but for some reason now all of the original objects have now reappeared again!! I dont know how this could happen because i used a different profile name so even if the teacher logged onto a machine which had his old big profile on there I was expecting that it wouldn’t reference to it because it was a different name.

    I have tried everything I can think of and am not getting anywhere with this. Any advice on this would be most appreciated.
