    Old User Documents

    Hi all

    Sorry if that has been posted before i did a quick search and didnt find anything the same.
    I have taken over as the new teki and the old teki has not removed old users so now our mapped drive has 14% free space.

    Where using server 2003 sp2 and im wondering if there is a fancy(magical) app that can link to ad and see the disabled accounts and then delete the documents not in use preferably by last logon, rather than doing it all manually taking ownership then delete which is taking too much time.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Chris.

    P.s what a fantastic forum big kudos to the creator.

    Are they pupils or staff?

    If pupils you should have years for each intake, so that would be easily to delete, but if its staff then I would do it manually to ensure you don't delete any current staff.

    They Are both for some strange reason, the the ou in ad are set out per year now and where as before all pupils where in 1 ou (no matter of year intake) and same as staff Inc Office staff.

    Ive sorted the ad side out and yet to seperate Teachers, office staff and pupils into there own redirected folder on the mapped drive. taking forever as we still had pupils accounts active from 2000.

    So you can imagine its a big task to check the disabled accounts with their folder then take ownership delete one by one.
