Users unable to delete files from their own desktop in RDS 2012

Hi there

We have an RDS environment running entirely on 2012 R2 session host servers.  User profile disks are in use to store user settings, desktops etc.

Users, obviously, do not have administrative permissions on the server.  We are currently experiencing an issue where users are unable to delete anything on their own desktops - even though they have full permission to it.  Creating a file there works fine, and the correct permissions are granted - system full control, Administrators full control, and the user full control - inherited from c:\users\<user>\desktop which maps from their UPD.

However when they try and delete a file they've just created, they get a UAC prompt, and are then denied access when they enter their own details.  Administrators on the server do not have this problem when trying to delete their own files.

Wyse TCX is running on this server, but don't think it will be a culprit.  Any ideas as to what the issue may be?
