I am working on SharePoint 2010. On My Site Collection one library is created by any user named is "Drop off Library". I want to remove this but I am not able to remove becasue I did not see "Delete this Library" option in Library Settings.

I went to Site Actions->Site Settings->In Site Actions Section 'Managet Site Features' and deactivate the Content Organizer but still I am not able to remove this Drop Off Library.

Please help me to remove this library.

Hi ewp-admin,

I have found the following:

"By default, the Drop off Library is not allowed to be deleted.
You could check the AllowDeletion Property value via SharePoint OM or SharePoint Manager 2010.
If you really tend to delete the library, please change the AllowDeletion Property value via SharePoint OM or SharePoint Manager 2010 from False to True.
But I do not suggest you to do this because I do not know if there is any side effect to the operation."

Hope this helps, please let me know.
