How do I delete User's Profile Folders

Discussion in 'Windows Server' started by North Coast Sea Foods, Aug 26, 2008.

  1. I have removed several User Accounts on my Windows 2003 Server AD.

    Now I need to delete the User's Profile Folders. Each time I try it tells me
    I do not have access?

    How, as Administrator, do I delete these folders?

    thx

    As an Administrator I would attend a couple of introductory training courses
    to learn about permissions and ownership so that I could become effective at
    my job.

  4. You just delete them. Sometimes you have to reboot the machine first
    because one or more of the system files in their profile stays in memory if
    that user has been logged on earlier. I have never had to mess with any
    permissions to delete a user profile while logged in as an Administrator.

  5. thanks to all

    My problem was not being the Administrator - it went further than that.

    I did have files running in the background and ended up deleting the
    individually.

    Philip - your were correct !- thanks
