[Samba] best way to deal with Windows 7 (.V2) profiles?

I have some users using sometimes Windows XP and sometimes Windows 7. In 
my smb.comf I only have one profile section, now Samba is creating both 
"profile" and "profile.V2" in the /home/<user> directory. Resulting in 
using twice the disk space.

1) Is there any way to link them ?
2) Do I need a profile.V2 section in my smb.conf?

    guest ok = no
