I have a Win2K TS with most of the thin users gone to Fat.
I am trying to clean up the terminal server beacuse of
space. I found most of the garbage comes from user
profiles under documents and settings. I am trying to
delete the files, but getting an error that the files may
be in use. These are useres no longer using the terminal
server. Would somone please advise to the procedure for
removing these files?

Thanks!

Thank you,

I thought that was the case. But I get an error when
deleting. :

"Profile not deleted completely. Error - The directory is
not empty."

Not sure what this means.

This means the user's profile was not fully unloaded the last time they logged out. Rebooting the server should fix this. There's also a User Profile Cleanup utility that can resolve these w/o reboot.

Thanks again,

I have rebooted the server with the same result. So I will
try the utility you suggested.
