Win2k3 DFS, have turned replication off, can i delete the

Hello,

I have a folder in DFS that i created. All users can see the additional folders *******_NTFRS_**** and ***do not remove****

I thought only domain admins should be able to see these folders?

Do i need to do something else here?

As i have now turned replication off, can i delete these folders??

Thanks,

Hi 93darkside,

are you intending on using DFS again in the future - i wouldnt delete them in case you do want to use it again. if you do decide to delete though, make sure you make a backup first just incase     when DFS is removed it can sometimes leave nasty leftovers....

Cheers!

93darkside,

you can permission them so that users can access but not cant see   i honestly havent dealt enough with DFS to know the importance of those 2 folders   i just have dealt with the leftovers......
