I’ve been trying to find a way preferably with group policy to removed cached login profiles from Windows 7 & 8 machines to prevent large profiles from filling up workstations hard drives.
A great website called PeteNetLive yields the answer. The group policy is located under the path:
Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > System > User Profiles
and is called:
“Delete cached copies of roaming profiles”
Once enabled you can set the number of days to keep cached profiles for before they are deleted. The deletion occurs after a reboot.
