I am trying to delete users’ home folders who no longer have an AD account. I found that Remove-Item only works properly if you use Get-ChildItem first and pipe it to Remove-Item.
This is the command I am using:
Get-ChildItem c:\whatever -Recurse -force | Remove-Item -force -recurse -Confirm:$true
It properly deletes the folder contents (including Favorites), but it does not delete the folder itself. I then try to delete it using Remove-Item but it says the folder is being used by another process.
Does anyone know how to get around this issue?
