NT profile limits & IE5 index.dat issues

By LACoonass ·
We use NT 4.0 with roaming profiles. 2mb profile limit. This is imposed by our parent office in Scottland. After awhile the index.dat files in the History folders grow to large sizes. The user cannot delete them since they are in use. How can this be removed w/o admin intervention???
Currently we have login as admin onthe WS and delete the History folder locally and on the users profile on the server. This is a pain.

Any Ideas???????

NT profile limits & IE5 index.dat issues

Hi!

Instead of doing it like that why not move the history and cache direxctory to another directory.

Another way is to lower the cache size to 128k and the time to save pages to just 1 day or something like that.

had already reduced cache size and size history for 1 day. Can't move the files. All worldwide PCs are built with unattent.txt and scripts. Corp. wants to keep everything the same. Possibly looking for some way to delete the files on the local PC and server profile before they become in use. Hopefully doing something like this with a script.

Set up a policy to delete the Internet explorer cache upon exit. I have successfully done this with IE4, and IE5 has the same thing. (Q185255) and (Q188692)
