Group Policy - Excluding folders from Roaming Profile


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


Just a quick question about the ability to exclude folders from a users roaming profile via GPO.

I am aware of how to set up the policy but my question is...


Will any existing data be removed from the server one the policy is applied?


At the moment there are no exclusions set and there are a few key folders we want to exclude (e.g. Downloads and AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files) as they are causing users to experience slow login times.

If I apply the policy, will the server automatically remove the existing data or will we have to login as each user and run a manual clean up on each profile, bearing in mind we have around 300 staff :unsure:?


Thanks in advance B)
