Check the group membership tab, and see what the default group is set to.  If it's not 'users', change it to that, and try the deletion again.

If that isn't it, look over the Security Permissions tab, and confirm that permissions aren't filtered.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

users was not in the group, so i added it. domain users + a few sbs profiles were in there
also Accidental Deletion was already unticked

how can you tell if permissions aren't filtered in the security tab ?

In ADUC -- go to View, and confirm that Advanced Features is checked.
Go to the user, properties, then the Security tab.  At the bottom should be an 'advanced' button.  Depending on your version, there will either be a check box for inheritance, or a button to Disable inheritance if enabled, or Enable inheritance if disabled.
But also from within the advanced security settings, you can go to the Effective Access tab, and confirm that your account has sufficient permissions to remove the account.
