Hello,

i hv implemented merge replication and while doing that a snapshot folder was generated over the network path.
now whenever i create a new publication the respective snapshot files are copied under the publication folder name.
my problem is that when i try to delete this folder i get an access denied error saying the files are in use.

i even tried by removing the replication setup but still it gives the same.
the folder size is increasing and i m not able to delete the files.

Plz help me out

Hi,

Have you tried un-sharing the snapshot folder, then deleting? Even better, have you considered deleting files that are not required to control space usage?


Hope this helps,
Phillip Cox
