  1. Hello Eli,
    Thanks for the video. Is it possible to set up a mechanism to clear that roaming user's cash when he logs out? Thanks for answer.

  2. Great explanation!!!

  3. great stuff…great video

    Question – if a person has a dual monitor and then logs into a station with one monitor, what happens to the items in the profile? Do all the icons cram onto one screen?? If so, what happens when I log back onto the station with two monitors? Do the icons stay on one screen or two?

  4. Hello Eli,

    Is it possible to use a mapped drive instead of using C drive

  5. this is great .Thank you

  6. You can turn off cached copies of the profile in group policy.

  7. Hi Eli. one word… AMAZING.  Thank you for making this simple, clear and calm.

  8. @eli oh now i got that clearly i was bugging you in the middle. lol.

  9. @Eli mostly our desktop data will be stored in their own systems as far as i know.

  10. (Q) how about outlook profile saved in i mean they cant access their mails from any computers i am also confused how any body can access their own desktop data or my documents file i got this doubt in the middle of your class please clarify.

  11. Eli, thanks for sharing this Server 2012 information. It has given me enough "ammunition" to present to the higher ups to bite the bullet and get a new server entirely.
    Now for the fun part of migrating all those workgroup logins. lol
    Keep up the great work.

  12. Hi Eli, thanks for your video, I've set it up however as an Administrator I cannot open the roaming folders; I get the error saying that the device is offline, I thought they were supposed to be saved to my server?

  13. Hi,
    Another great video Thanks,
    I was wondering if roaming profile's could eat the network bandwidth, especially at 8:45am and 5:30pm with everyone logging on and off at the same time.
    Is this a possibility?
    Thanks Again
