My roaming profiles are averaging about 70-100MB. I need themto be in the
3-6MB range. I have scoured MS website for solutions and have implemented
the following:

My Documents Folder redirection to server

Cookies, Temp, Temp Internet not roaming

I do not wish to limit the size of these profiles, because that isn't
solving the problem of my 70MB profiles

Not related to Outlook because we have Exchange.


I would also like to know if there is a way to redirect the DESKTOP Folder
of the roaming profile to not be part of the equation. This way I don't have
to keep telling users not to save to the Desktop.

Thank You,

Greg

Using group policies you can either (1) take the desktop folder out of the roaming equation completely (a-la temp), or (2) you can
use the user...windows...folder policy to remap the desktop folder to a server share using the 'basic' setting with "create a folder
for each user under this path..."

The latter is for 2003 Server - it may be different under 2000 Server and you might need to use %username% in the path string to
accomplish the same thing.
