Can't delete file on server from users saved profile...
Posted on 2013-02-05
I have a directory on my server that houses roaming user profiles. One user somehow got a couple of corrupt files on the desktop folder of his user profile. These then copied over to the server which can now not be deleted. One other additional item I noticed is that the two offending files do not seem to exist on the user’s desktop on the workstation.
The two files are:
Prf3cc6.tmp and prf4773.tmp and they are both 0 KB files.
The error I get is “Cannot delete ‘File’: The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable”.
The server is Windows server 03 and the drive is a Mirrored set on two SCSI drives.
Right clicking on the file and showing properties does not show any security tab in which I could take permission and delete it that way.
This is a production server, so our options for taking it offline and re-formatting the drive are limited.
Finally, this is the only issue we are having with this drive. Historically, this system has been reliable and stable.
Thanks in advance
