We're trying to flatten and get rid of DFSR (not DFS totally) but to remove the replication folders and I have one (the last one) that just won't go.
D:\Drive (Data) \System Volume Information\DFSR\Private\7\p\5_5_09class25amTF..........
I have taken ownership of the folders as Domain Admin which has allowed me to delete everything else in the DFSR directory but when I select the last folder or any of the folders in the path above to be deleted (shift + delete) the folder disappears for about 3 seconds and then reappears.
It's as if it won't go because DFS as a service is still running (but the dfsr service is stopped and disabled at present). DFS has to still host the namespace to allow users to access shared data.
Any ideas as I can't rebuild the replication platform until the DFSR folder has been fully deleted from the System Volume Information directory.
