    Hi,

    I have a user that has now left our company and would therefore like to delete their roaming profile from the profiles folder on our server.

    I have deleted their account from Active Directory and have then tried to delete their profile from the roaming profiles folder. But when I do this I get the access denied message, the reason being that the file may be open or I do not have sufficient rights. I have also taken ownership of the folder so I have all the correct permissions.

    Anyone have any ideas ?

    Thanks,

    Hello,

    Try to reset the permissions of the folder, and then make sure you have ownership of the sub folders to.

    What OS are you using?
