Would love to see your script when finished.  I wrote something in vb in 2008 
to do this, I'm sure powershell makes this MUCH simpler to script...

Subject: [THIN] profile bloat

Hi all,

Just looking into identifying some areas of a user's roaming profile that can 
be deleted without affecting user settings . either on logout or from a scrip 
on the file servers when no users are connected.


How many days


User Cookies


User History


User Recent Docs


Java deployment cache



Macromedia files


\Macromedia\Flash Player

Microsoft Crash files



File types


*.log *.tmp *.xar

Some areas that have been identified so far.

Is this what most are doing or I'm I missing a few.

I intend to run this against our 2k3 XenApp profiles as well as our Vista/W7
