I have a Remote Desktop Services running on Windows Server 2012. Users who have the access to that server have the roaming profile set up but every time when they log off a warning message displays on the screen saying that:
Your roaming user profile was not completely synchronized. See the event log for details or contact administrator.
By checking the event log, a few warning entries show that
Windows cannot copy file \\?\C:\Users\131\System Volume Information to location \\?\UNC\backup\mcq\profiles\tsProfiles\131.V2\System Volume Information. This error may be caused by network problems or insufficient security rights.
So why a user profile has a folder called System Volume Information that is only made for a storage volume? That’s because I am using User Profile Disk for the Remote Desktop sessions. Each session has its own disk mounted to store the user profile data. And because it’s basically a disk, it has a system hidden folder called System Volume Information only accessible by the operating system.
The only way to get around it is to exclude this folder from roaming profile. You can do that through Group Policy.
Open Group Policy Management Policy, go to
User Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > User Profiles
Double click Exclude directories in roaming profile setting.
Click Enable, and type in the folder names, separated by semi-colons.
Click OK when done and that will do the trick next time when you log in and log off.
