Delete cached copies of roaming profiles not working

If you find that after enabling the above policy, local profiles do not always delete when a user logs off, you could try the below:

1) Right click the share where the profiles are located
2) Click properties
3) Click the sharing tab
4) Click offline settings or caching
5) Enable ‘Files or programs from the share will not be available offline’

If you have no luck with the above, click the following link for a script which you can deploy via Group Policy to remove local profiles –
