User state virtualization describes the separation of user settings and data from an end user's personal computer. Microsoft Windows provides three technologies for virtualizing user state information: Roaming User Profiles, Folder Redirection, and Offline Files. Windows 7 includes improvements that provide IT implementers with more options, greater flexibility, and simplified management of these User State Virtualization technologies, as well as provide end users with a better overall experience.
