Deleting user folders under documents and settings.

Discussion in 'Microsoft Windows 2000 Terminal Server Application' started by Steven Jablonski, Jun 3, 2004.

  1. 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.
