Roaming Profile - How it works RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I was looking for a specific information concerning the Roaming Profiles I didn't found anywhere.

    Roaming profiles might be a performance issue in some case. It download the profile, settings and datas, at logon and will upload it at logoff. To that point, I get it. Here is my question : is the used profile stored in the computer using it after logoff or will the computer need to download it entirely at next logon even if it is on the same computer and haven't changed since last logon ?

  • Short answer: It download the profile again at logon and uploads (and removes the local copy) at logoff.

    If you have a lot of data in the userprofiles you can take a look at user profile disk and/or folder redirection.
