I am deploying windows 7 through altiris and I am noticing that the profile sizes under C:\users\username are about 200MB. Is there any way to trim the fat? I already deleted the temp files out of the appdata folder but I am sure more can go. Anyone got any thoughts on what can go? I am now at 117MB
If your users are running Outlook in cached mode, the OST file (offline storage) is placed in the profile, that could take up some space and is easy to get rid of (it will just regenerate, if I remember correctly).
However, for Win7 deployments I would really urge you to have a look at USMT4.0, the newest version of the user state migration tool. It lets you maintain the user profiles on local disk while doing a new installation of windows (through some dark magic I think), which eliminates the whole user profile problem altogether.
