I have several users in Active Directory that no longer work with the company (they left ages ago). Their accounts are still active.
I was going to simply right-click the user in Active Directory Users and Computers, and select Delete. Microsoft rather instructs to go to Control Panel, System, Advanced, User Profiles, locate the profile to be deleted, and click Delete.
Are these one and the same operations? I have already backed up the c:\users\<user> folders for the users I want to delete. My desire is to have no user account for that user in Active Directory, and I intend to delete the c:\users folder once they are removed.
What's the best way to do this?
