Hi guys,

I got roaming profiles deployed using AD profile path. not using folder redirection.

Profile all saving in a server- network shared folder. inside the folder, for each user, it has many versions. what does it mean ? why it is creating many versions ? is it ok to delete old versions ? 

For eg. for userA, there are folders like.   userA.v1 , userA.v2, userA.v3

right now drive in the server is running out of space, i need to clear some space straightaway, so is it ok to delete userA.V1 ? i mean ok to delete all versions except latest version number. 

Could anyone plz help me with this. 

Thank you

You may want to go in and check the settings for that Group Policy and make sure it is configured correctly. If you are setting the profile path through AD, make sure you are setting the userprofile variable correctly.


In either case, the profile settings are in the registry under HKEY_CURRENT_USER
