Hi All,

I recently started a new company and I am trying to tidy up their Active Directory.


They have an OU called printers with nothing in it.

Is this a system folder?

If not, am I ok to delete it?


Thanks
D

Printers is not a system folder,  The actual only "OU" that is in a default AD installation of AD is the domain controllers OU.  The rest of the default folders are containers (without the book icon/just plain looking folders)

In ADUC if you select view > Advanced you will see the system folder and subfolder

Thanks
