Best Practice for the retension of user accounts in the C\Users folder RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am wondering if there is a best practice for the retention of user folders in C\Users ?

    I want to delete users that have not logged into  a machine in a certain amount of time but am wondering if there is a best practice amount of time that you should wait before deleting them from this folder.

    Thanks for any help that you can give

  • That's more of a business decision than anything. If in the case of RDS you could ask over here.
