On an SBS 2011 Standard server, I'm trying to delete the redirected folders, Desktop, My Documents etc. of some employees no longer with the company. The employees in question are no longer on the system as 'Users'. I've logged in as the Network Administrator and tried to delete them via 'Explorer', without success. I've then gone in and taken ownership of the folders in question, but the system still won't let me delete them. It says I need permission from 'myself'....i.e. it comes up with the domain and my name. How can I delete these folders?

Thanks for that......I had done that, but what I failed to notice was that in the 'Advanced Security Settings' windows there is a tick box to 'Replace owner on subcontainers and objects'. Having ticked that I can now get rid of the offending folders.
Thanks for pointing towards the right area
