JSI Tip 0106 - Roaming profiles consume disk space.

When a user with a roaming profile logs off a workstation, a copy of the profile is cached on the local hard drive. If other persons with roaming profiles use that workstation, disk space is being consumed to keep these cached profiles. To configure so that roaming profiles are not cached, edit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Edit or add value DeleteRoamingCache as type REG_DWORD. Set it to 1.
