Hello again!

I have a windows 2003 server R2 where I am administrator.

I have set it up where users are using raoming profiles. These are stored on a shared folder that I created on the server.

Some of the users are no longer necessary. Therefore I deleted the user and his personal folder. But I cannot delete his roaming profile (the folder on the server where the desktop, etc. is stored). Anything I try to do on these profile folders is dinied. I cannot delete, rename, view the contets etc.

This is a real big problem, as some users no longer active and that have already been deleted anre ocupying many GB of disk space with their profiles.

Any one got a sugestion on how to delete these folders, I appreciate it.

Hi
Have you tried taking ownership of those roaming profile folders on the server?

Arani is correct. Here is a MS document on how to do so in 2003 server.
