Thanks all for the reply.
After further checking it seems the biggest culprits are the Desktop 
folder and the Application Data folder.
These are the porkers : ) The Application Data folder is 209M alone. How 
important is this folder?

Is there a way to edit what gets backed up when a user logs off? It 
would be nice to skip over these folders.( not sure if this would defeat 
the purpose of roaming profiles though)

I am not a windows person so the answer is not readily apparant.
