Hello all,

I am running Windows 2000 Server with about 60 clients. What i would like to do is delete old roaming profiles from the server. Is there an easy way to do this? Form my experience you need to take ownership of each folder and subfolder and then delete them (V.Time consuming if a lot of folders).

Cheers,

Baikie

You can use the take ownership function and use the "replace ownership on all child objects" so you don't have to do it for every subfolder. Same counts for the permissions, just use the "replace permissions on all child objects"

Greetings,

You may also want to enable the group policy "Add the Administrators Security group to roaming profiles" so that you don't have to worry ab out this in the future.  The policy is located in Computer Configuration - Administrative Templates - System - Logon.

Still could not delete certain folders and files with the first method (LucF).

Applied the group Policy "Add the administrators Security group to roaming profiles" and now i can delete any profiles created since applying the policy. Cheers. Points for ocon827679
