I am trying to determine the best way to delete user profiles on a Windows 7 computer. I work in an educational institution and so there are hundreds of user profiles that get recorded on each computer in the lab before too long. The built-in user profile manager only deletes one user profile at a time, so this is extremely inefficient.
I see that in Group Policy there is the following option found under Computer Configuration -> Policies -> Administrative Templates -> System -> User Profiles -> Delete User profiles older than a specified number of days on system restart I have an OU called Students and tied to this OU are certain restrictions that control the computer environment. I have placed the computers in this same Students OU so that when the computer restarts the user profiles that are more than one day old will be deleted. However, i can't get this to work. The profiles are not being deleted.
Does anyone have any ideas why this group policy item is not working? Thanks for your assistance.
