QUOTAS - Can Not Delete Quota Entries

We have accounts ([Account Information Unavailable]) that show up in QUOTA Entries that have a small 1kb file (or something) attached to them.
When we try to delete them, we cant, I understand as an admin I can take ownership and delete them but no file shows up to delete or take ownership of. I am assuming that this is some sort of pointer left over. Does anyone know of a way to see what file is attached to these [Account Information Unavailable] accounts? I have tried a few of the powershell scrips that map SIDs to files but  not having much success.
Windows Server 2008 HPC
I have tried to just turn quotas off.. but they show up again when it is re-enabled.

The image you provided would seem to indicate that these are domain accounts that belong to a domain that has either lost its trust relationship or simply doesn't exist any longer. If that's the case you would be in no danger of simply taking ownership and deleting them.

In this case, Windows is displaying the SID because it doesn't know anything else. These are pretty much orphans at this point.

Actually Russ a JR admin deleted these student accounts before deleting the quota entries ... so yes they are orphaned but left a pointer to the ACL file/folders somewhere. No file to take ownership of as you see when i try to delete them.

Thanks Russ... Dirquota with a "Disable Quota Mgmt" on the Volume ...then re-enabling quotas  worked.. Orphans are now able to be be deleted... at least on the quick 10 accounts I tried.
