unable to delete object in redirected Folders (Desktop) + Windows 7 + roaming Profiles

    Question

  • Hi all,

    for some reason a number of Windows 7 users are not allowed to delete files or folders from their own Desktop. All Desktops are redirected to home drives. In one case a user is able to delete same folder over H:\desktop but not directly over his Desktop.

    The ntfs permissions are right otherwise they are not able to delete the objects over their home drive.

    Is there any known problem with folder redirection and roaming profiles by Windows 7?

    Regards,

  • Hi,

    Can you please provide the detailed information about the issue? For exmaple, 1. How does the user delete the folder that he actually does not have delete right? 2. What kind of security settings are on the folders? 3. What inheritance settings are set on the folder?

    Based on my understanding, if an user does not have delete right, he should not be able to delete the object.

  • Hi Juke,

    sorry for the late answer. The problem has to do with missing delete permission on $Recycle.Bin.
    When I look on the properties of Recycle bin there is no permission tab! But I can see C Drive, Desktop, My Pictures and My Videos.
    Desktop is on of the redirected Folders in this case. I'll delete all of Folders listed in properties Windows of Recycle bin which are redirected, logg off and logg on the user again. This should solve my Problem!

    Regards,
