I have a folder created by a member of staff in the public folders section which shouldn’t be there. The folder is called Contacts and it contains all his personal contact details.

I have tried to delete it but do not have permission even though I'm a member of the domain admins group.  Also the (domain) Administrator account for the domain is unable to delete it also.

Is there anyway I can delete this folder manually from AD or any method I should try?
