Group policy to delete local profiles after user logs off RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    There are systems where users login for general activity and they pile up almost every day. Is there a group policy to delete the local profiles after the user logs off. I came across policies where the profiles are deleted after x number of days or using delprof.exe or using scripts or remove cached roaming profiles but we do not want to use them.

    We want to use only group policies to delete local profiles immediately after the user logs off. Any help would be appreciated.

  • Hi,

    Not Roaming profile? for Local profile, I haven't found a policy to delete it after user logoff, but if what you want to achieve is prevent user saving settings to the desktop, then you can use mandatory user profile instead,.

    This profile does not save changes made by the user to the desktop settings. Users can modify the desktop settings of the computer while they are logged on, but none of these changes are saved when they log off. The mandatory profile settings are downloaded to the local computer each time the user logs on.
