Print Folder-not clear after job print

By sandra ·
The printer spool folder In System 32/spool/printers does not clear after the job prints. I have deleted this folder; I have deleted the spooler services; I have deleted printer and added; I have deleted all printers and added; I have ran a repair on OS, Windows 2000.
It is a network printer and it works for the other 25 users, just fine.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You didn't check the box that said retain print jobs after printing did you?

Go to the printers properties.
Choose the advanced tab.
Un-Check the "Keep printed Documents" checkbox.

Hope it helps,

Go into your services on the machine and then open the print spooler service by double clicking on it. Then simply start and restart the service. This will fix jobs that get stuck in the print queue.
