    Urgently need help.
    Whenever I delete a user from the account list, the user account will be
    remove but an error will prompt telling me that the home folder can't be
    remove.
    How can I remove the user acount + home folder and everything together
    without any error?
    I copy and paste the error msg below.

    Error msg retrieve from:
    c:/Program Files/Microsoft Windows Small Business Server/Support/delusr.lo

    Home folder: \\LAHSERVER\Users\aa
    The home folder for this user account could not be removed.
    Failed to delete user's quota with error [0x80070050]. This can occur if
    the user still has files on the server.

  2. Hi,

    Thanks for posting here.

    From your post, my understanding on this issue is: you find the following
    error message from delusr.log file:
    ====================================
    Remove user on date: Wed Nov 22 10:51:32 2006

    User account name:
    LDAP://CN=AA,OU=SBSUsers,OU=Users,OU=LAH,DC=lahdomain,DC=local
    Home folder: \\LAHSERVER\Users\aa
    The home folder for this user account could not be removed.
    Failed to delete user's quota with error [0x80070050]. This can occur if
    the user still has files on the server.
    The user account was removed.
    =======================================
    If I am off base, please feel free to let me know.

    First at all, if the issue is urgent to your business, it is recommended
    that you contact Microsoft Product Support Services via telephone so that
    a dedicated Support Professional can assist you recover the server in a
    more efficient manner. Please be advised that contacting phone support
    will be a charged call.

    To obtain the phone numbers for specific technology request please take a
    look at the web site listed below.

    If you are outside the US please see http://support.microsoft.com for
    regional support phone numbers.

    Based on my test, you need manually delete the home folder after you
    deleted the user. By default, Administrators group have full control
    permission on all home folder. Also, if you configure Disk Quota settings
    for this user on the server, you can refer to the following steps to delete
    it:

    Right click Partition, such as D:\ -> Properties -> Quota -> Quota Entries,
    please delete the appropriate quota entries.

    However, if you cannot access \\LAHSERVER\USERS\AA, you can use
    administrator account to take ownership, and then delete it.

    If you have any unclear, please feel free to let me know, I am looking
    forward to your reply.

    Have a nice day.
