Deleting pc accounts of the same name RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm very sure I'll be ok.. I just need a confirm:

    I'd reinstalled vista on a client pc-- 32bit to 64-- and used the same pc name as previous.. and restored from previous backups.

    I thought WHS would id by pc name and continue using previous registration, backups.. etc.

    I now have 2 client accounts of same name, ie; 'PC-office', and wish to delete the previous.

    Can I right-click, 'remove computer' without affecting the new account of the same name?

    Thanks.. David

  • Yes. If you can identify which "pc" is which in the console, you can delete one without affecting the other.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
