Running a server with server 2008 R2 with users logging on using Netvoyager thin clients via RDP with roaming profiles. When a user deletes a file it appears as though it was deleted but returns after relogging on. This only happens to normal user accounts but deletes permanately under the administrator account. the problem both occurs if the user is using a thin client or normal pc connected via RDP. The user cannot delete nor can i gain access to their profile to delete.

Software/Hardware used:
Server 2008, Netvoyager thin clients,

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I have seen this with Roaming proifles and RDP, apparently the file is deleted off the users desktop, but not the copy that is held in their profile. So the next time they login, the copy is returned. (I personally have removed all roaming profiles in favor of just using Folder Re-diretion to get their data backed up. My users do not move from desktop to desktop).

We found the only way to clear this issue was to delete the file from the profile as well as the desktop which required Administrative involvement for every file. Part of the reason we dumped it.
