I have one public calendar that I am for some reason unable to delete. I have granted myself owner permissions via exchange management shell, as I have done with numerous other public folders that I have been able to delete without issue. After giving myself owner permissions, it gives me the Delete option in the drop down and even goes through everything like it is going to work, then it hangs and says 5 seconds left….then a bit later it pops with this message:
Cannot delete this folder. Right-click the folder, and then click Properties to check your permissions for the folder. See the folder owner or your administrator to change your permissions. You do not have sufficient permission to perform this operation on this object. See the folder contact or your system administrator.
I have checked, and I have even gone to the trouble to remove my permissions and then re-add them. I have closed outlook (2013) and re-opened it, all to no avail. This is the LAST public folder in my organization, and I am this close to permanently doing away with public folders…..and yes, I was getting this error before it was the last public folder. I got frustrated and moved on to delete about half a dozen other public folders before coming back to this last one.
Any ideas as to how I can kill this thing? It does not have any child objects as far as I can tell.
