You can configure a Group Policy Object (GPO) to perform the preceding behavior by performing the following steps:
- Edit the GPO that you want to modify.
- Locate the following section: Computer Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ System \ User Profiles.
- Double-click Delete cached copies of roaming profiles (the Group Policy setting).
- Click Enabled.
NOTE: The preceding steps involve a computer configuration setting. When Group Policy is applied to a container, such as an organizational unit, it can apply to all computers in that organizational unit and not necessarily to all users in that organizational unit. For example, if a user in the organizational unit that has this policy, logs on to a computer that is in another organizational unit that does not have this policy, a copy of the roaming profile can remain on the computer. Once this policy is applied to a computer it applies to all users that use that computer.
