File locked for editing by user that has been deleted from the Active Directory
Posted on 2008-10-21
I have an interesting situation where a file is being locked for editing by a user that has been deleted from our Active Directory for several months. The folder is on a file server. The folder was copied and renamed but the deleted user did not have permissions before or after the folder was copied and renamed. I've checked the Active Directory for this user using the find option in AD and I was unable to find the user in the AD. I also have searched the registry of the file server and did not find any entries for the deleted user.
I would like to be able to open this file. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.
