A roaming profile is a profile associated with the user and includes, for example, program settings. The roaming profile enables you to use your personal settings on all University work stations. The profile is saved on the server, and its maximum size is 300 MB.
Do not save your personal files in the profile as it should only be used for program settings. Save your personal files in your home directory (Z drive).
Quick guide to switching to a local profile
- Log in by using the short format of your University of Helsinki username (for example, rkeskiva).
- On the page displayed, select Remove (roaming) profile beneath your profile information:
Log out of your workstation at the end of the workday. Administration runs the roaming profile removal overnight, after which your account will be switched to the local profile.
