folder delete in Documents and Settings

I have three folders in Documents and Settings:

Default User  H
LocalService  HS
NetworkService  HS

Can I delete these? They've only shown up recently and I only log in with an admin account which already has it's profile folder there.

Thanks.

No you shouldnt delete these, they are only now showing up cause you enabled "show hidden"

I've always had "show hidden" checked. They seem to have shown up after I made a local login account for Admin that I'll never use again. Also, these three folders are killing my Backup Exec jobs.

maybe I just haven't looked actually. ARe those folders needed if there are no local accounts?

These are default folders. The only one you'll have success in deleting is the "Default Users" folder, but this is needed for first time logon. How are these killing your backup jobs?

Just do an exception for those folder under backupexec so they don't show that your backup job failed.  As that dude DStew just said, they are default folders and they should not be deleted.  

No, you really don't per say really need these folders,but are you also going to delete everything in the windows directory that you don't use?  No you wouldn't do that.  Regardless, it won't let you delete you all of these folders without some serious work arounds.  Please do not delete these folders :)

Don't worry, we have seen this before and you are ok to exclude them from the backup and not delete them.

Thanks
