Reducing profile corruption - Cutting costs and increasing productivity
User Profile Corruption is one the most costly, and common aspects of desktop management. It is a time-consuming IT task which also impacts the business through loss of user productivity and high service desk support costs. One major cause of profile corruption occurs when user settings are not properly saved back to the central profile, this typically happens at user logoff. When large amounts of data are transferred back from multiple locations to the profile store, settings can often overwrite each other, and a mis-match in the time stamps can lead to corruption, preventing the user from logging on or launching an application in their next desktop session.
