WinXP Pro deleting User

  Zak 17:30 15 Oct 2006

I have deleted a user account via control panel - user accounts a while back. I have checked under My Computer - Manage and the old account no longer exists.

I have now noticed that the account folder is still present under Documents & Settings.

Is it OK just to delte the folder and all subfolders for this old account?

Perhaps some ideas on this today?

I've done this before and there was an option to combine any user files into All Users. The My Docs folder of that user were deleted automatically after that.

Seeing as the User Account is gone I don't see any system requirement to retain it anymore. Maybe something in the registry is needed (for some unknown reason) but not the folders themselves.
