We just got off the roaming profile regime and went with AppSense in the last 
year.  We had over 15k profiles.  At some point, all those cookies, temp files, 
Java cache, AppV cache, CryptURL Cache and items that users will save into the 
desktop folder will cause profiles to bloat majorly.

15k profiles came to more than 11 million files and 300GB in total.  We had 
management scripts that would groom the profile folders to purge cookies older 
than 30 days, delete temp files and various cache folders as well as generate a 
list of profiles over 100MB in size to stay on top of it.  It lasted longer 
than it should have before we went with an enterprise class profile solution.

Subject: [THIN] IE cookie bloat

We are still using standard basic MS roaming profiles. One of the things we've 
seen is IE cookie bloat, sometimes there are 10's of thousands of cookies in a 
profile if its been around for a while. I've thought about running ccleaner at 
logoff, but that deletes all cookies, is anyone running a script or software to 
deleted only cookies older than let's say 90 days?
