How to delete an old redirected folder from the server 2008

Hi all, I am trying to delete some old users redirected folders from my server, so I can free up some much needed HDD space.
I have disabled the redirection for the old users in AD and I have also changed the permissions on the folder itself but it still says I dont have permission
to delete the folder.
I know with permissions on folders that the share permissions need to be inline with security permissions of a folder. Now because this is a redirected folder it has
a shared flag on the folder but when you right click and look at the share status it says its not shared. So im thinking that this is why i cant delete the folder as the share permissions for redirected folders are accessed elswhere, but I dont know where?
I hope I have made myself clear.
So the long and short of it is how do I delete a old redirected folder?

run the subinacls to check for security permissions, also have you enabled the permission to propagate to all the subfolers/files ?
