Hi Gang, Question if you have three accounts in xp pro and two of them have administrators rights and you are going to delete one of them, will the other account with administrator right automatically inherit all folders and subfolders? Of the one you are deleting or do I need to take ownership of the folders and subfolders first before I delete that account? Thanks

do you mean folders within that user's profile? or generally accessable folders on the computer?
if you delete a user....all folders within the profile (i.e. the documents and settings jazz below that user, i ncluding their my documents and desktop icons) will be deleted along with it...

if you mean the generally accessed folders (folder x on the c: drive or program files)...then technically any user with administrative rights already has applied permissions and implied ownership of the files and folders
