    In our company we run an XPSP3 system image onto desktops and laptops. On some of these machines the User Profile gets damaged, forcing Windows to load a new profile, or rather, a TEMP profile.

    Recently I noticed that running Chkdsk /f on these computers, rendered a correction in the file system: "Correcting errors in the uppercase file". See also

    I have googled a bit and what seems to be a possible scenario is that the guys who do our image sysprep minipe, does it with a tool that creates the NTFS partition of the image with a tool (maybe FDISK) thats has a version higher than recommended. This makes sense since the image loads the W7 bootloader when in progress.

    The question is whether there could be a relation between these disk errors and the frequent, but not overwhelming, creation of Temp profiles on some computers?
