    Profiles Issue

    Hi guys I need some advice!!

    I have a seperate profiles folder on the server for all our users.

    I want to blanket delete all the profiles so I should be able to delete all user profiles in the profiles folder. Then when the user logs back in, it should recreate the folder.

    However, when I did this for a year group, although the folder was recreated in the profiles folder, I could gain access to it. I couldnt even gain access by taking ownership.

    Is this a common problem? Am I doing it completely wrong? & whats the work around??

    Should I just write a bat file to delete the NTuser.Dat file & Application & User Data folders?

    Help much appreciated.

    Take ownership of the containing folder and have it propogate downwards.
