I have a volume on a 2003 server which host a share where the domain user profiles reside.

For some reason some account show the folder size as 0kb+ and it doesn't allow me to access or even rename the folder although I am logged in as the domain admin. I have tried  using the lock hunter tool but no process seems to be locking the folders. Both the C: and d: volumes are relatively low on space. C has 5gb and dD has 1.5gb left out of 17GB in size(both c and d) Below is a screen shot that may help out.

Please help. Thanks.

Thanks  folder size 0kb

Some files of profile may be locked after user logged... so you should try to reboot server (file unlocked) and rename again?

You'll probably find that even as admin you have not got access to a user profile folder. You will need to take ownership of the folder. The size of a folder will read 0 if you have got rights to the folder.
