[Aside] Links to DFSR, Profile Data, etc.

Been reading quite a bit about user profiles and stuff lately. I’ve always imagined profiles as this blob of user settings + data under the C:\Users\<username> location. And every time we need to reset a profile there’s this arduous task of backing up the user data too and restoring it. Silly.

But turns out it’s just easier to use folder redirection and redirect all your data folders to a common place. Advantage of this is that roaming profile users can login any place and have the latest up-to-date data. None of the hassle of requiring a logoff-login for the profile to sync etc.
