The Roaming folder is to preserve user data. Imagine a company with 1000 workstations, and employee use different workstations each day. By roaming the user profile data (copy to server), the custom data is always available regardless of any workstation the employee uses.

So what's the LocalLow folder for?
And why can't Windows work out if you need a roaming profile or not?
