JSI Tip 3712. Excluded profile folders are being uploaded to your Windows 2000 profile?

Even though you have excluded some directories from your profile (tips 3868 and 3543), these excluded folders are uploaded to your profile when you log off?

When Windows 2000 retrieves the ExcludeProfileDirs value, it writes the data to Ntuser.ini. If the data exceeds 260 characters, a buffer overflow occurs and the entire string is considered to be NULL.

To resolve the issue, limit the total length of the exclusion list to 260 characters.
