Your Roaming User Profile was not Completely Synchronized in Windows 10



Roaming user profile is mainly a feature that allows you to navigate the documents of another computer connected to the same network. After upgrading to Windows 10 1803, you may receive the following error message:

Your roaming profile was not completely synchronized. See the event log for details or contact administrator"


This issue happens on account of a change that was made in Windows 10 Version 1803. This change inadvertently caused folders that are ususally excluded from roaming to be synchronized by roaming user profiles when you log on or log off.

To work around this problem, you can copy the ExcludeProfileDirs registry key from a Windows 10 Version 1709-based computer to the Version 1803-based computers that are experiencing the problem. Same registry key can also be copied from another Version of 1803-based computer that doesn’t have this issue.

Full path to the registry key:


Code:

HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\ExcludeProfileDirs



If you don’t have access to another system having preinstalled Windows 10 v1709 or v1803 then create the value on your system To fix Your Roaming User Profile was not Completely Synchronized follow the procedure:

1. Copy the below texts at once using Ctrl+C hotkey, Open Notepad and paste into this application by pressing Ctrl+V.

Code:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]

"ExcludeProfileDirs"="AppData\\Local;AppData\\LocalLow;$Recycle.Bin;OneDrive;Work Folders"




2. Now, press Ctrl+S. Type ExcludeProfileDirs.reg in the "File name:" box and choose the location as per your need and click on Save button.


3. Right-click on the ExcludeProfileDirs.reg registry file you just created and then select Merge.

That’s all!
