  • Does this question have anything to do with Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V)? As you've posted in the App-V Server and Management forum, I can only assume that it does, but your wording of the question leads me to believe that it doesn't. If it does not, I'll move this thread to a more appropriate forum.

    To answer your question, a bit of searching found this existing thread: Script to delete User roaming profiles and home Folder stored on server

  • Hi,

    Please check if this script could help:

    Delete Unused User Profiles

    http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/305cb35b-e759-4368-8a60-7ec833b90bb8

    You could modify some entries to meet your requirement.

    Also PowerShell could help list properties of an AD user account. Please check the detailed information of:

    get-qaduser administrator | select *

    I don't follow - you asked how to delete user's profiles stored on a file server (i.e. a network location), the script I've linked to has plenty of examples of how to look up the user in AD and delete their home folder. This could be modified to delete their profile instead.
