Deleting NT Network Shares

By FANCOMS ·
I've a NT server 4.0 SP5. I'm trying to delete the network shares of former employees and am recieving an error message saying that I cannot delete the Network Trash Folder. Each employee has a network trash folder so I am unable to delete any of their folders. I'm not really sure why a network trash folder is being created on each persons share. Possibly something to do with them also being MAC accessable. What do you think?

Stop the network share for each person. The Network Trash is not really a share but a reference to a type of Temp folder.
After a day or so you can check if the Trash folder is still there and then try to delete the files in it. The Trash folder iscreated by the system and you will not be able to delete it.

Even after I stopped sharing the folder, the network trash folder remains and can't be removed.

Stop the MAC services and then take ownership of the files. You can delete them and the re-start the MAC services.

Thanks......Jeremy

You can stop the network shared folder from Server Manager then delete it from Explorer. If you can't do so, take the ownership for that particular folder then you should be able to delete it. I hope this can help you. Let me know, if you need any help.

Even after I stopped sharing the folder, the network trash folder remains and can't be removed. The network trash folder is not shared itself, its in a user folder that was shared and until I can delete the Network trash folder, I won't be able to delete the user folder.

Properly, this 'System Policy Editor' is what that you should looking for. Simply run this from Start - Run - 'poledit.exe' or from command prompt. I hope this can help you. Let me know, if you need any help.

Can you explain this further. I can't make system policy changes as I'm on a WAN distributed domain and any changes I make are felt sytem wide.
