Active Directory User Home Folder Removal

Last Modified: 2017-11-08
I have a student account that needs removed and was trying to delete their Home Drive folder on our storage server but it says I do not have permissions.  I am the administrator for our district and can remove all other old user home drives with no issues.  His folder shows a lock on it.  I tried adding my username as the owner and giving security rights but that still will not work.  The server is running 2008 R2 as the OS.
