We could also look at configuring ACLs so that Windows can generate its own profile directories. I feel this would be the best solution as it means we wouldn't need to store any unused profile directories and we wouldn't even have to generate any.

#7 Updated by Stefano Fancello almost 4 years ago

Hi Jacob, two question: can we allow write permission to the previous directory to let windows write profiles without let it knowing the content of other users directories? Do windows create his own profile directory if it has write access? If you are able to set up a testing environment maybe you can try by changing ACL's manually.

i've tested the current patch, and it works. can i post the report and set as verified and maybe for the suggestion of jacob we could open a new feature request, or it's better continue the test of new path here?

Just go with the verification, we can open a new issue for the enhancement.

Thanks!
