  • Do yo uhave permission to do this task?

    Try using Exfolders or PFDavAdmin.

    Also, SP1 is out of support, I'd upgrade to SP3 + laest RU.

    Hello,

    I agree with Sukh’s suggestions.

    Here is the article on remove public folder client permissions. Please check your permission before you run the cmdlet Remove-PublicFolderClientPermission.
