Never bothered to look if they were saved locally before...... You learn something new everyday!! I always assumed that they were only saved on the server after they logged out of the client. Did some reading and it seems that the local cache is meant to speed up login times and reduce network overhead. As you said though it will really clog up the drives with a lot of different people using it. One way to reduse the local caching is to use redirected files....which you had already done before... however I think the major malfunction was that you had not established the roaming profile properly first. This will lower but not completely eliminate the local copy because some of the files need to be locally located in order for some portions of windows and aome programs to work properly. Try redirecting the my documents, desktop, and applcation data folders should save lots of space. oh and if you use a mandatory profile you can eliminate redirecting the desktop since it will not save any changes anyhow.
As far as mapping network drive prefer to use log on/log off scripts for two reasons. One it allows me to create differnt scripts for differnet groups or user needs. Two you can change them anytime and they are run as updated the next time the user logs in. The only thing I do is create one script that creates the drives and a seperate script that disconnects the drive a log off. Sometimes if all of the commands are in one script the OS will attempt to run the script before the mapped drive from the last time the script was run is logged of which results in an annoying error message...and an annoying number of calls from the end users. Using a separate log off script eliminates this potential conflict...and headaches!!!!
