Profile cleanup: unable to delete desktop

Jump to solution

Hi all,

I am trying to use profile cleanup to delete the contents of the local desktop at logoff, however the flexengine log says: [ERROR] Profile cleanup: Skipping blacklisted folder '<Desktop>'

Is there a way around this blacklist?

Hi SanderK0,

That blacklist is in place to prevent UEM admins from removing too much by mistake, but it can indeed be overridden: just append \[FORCE DELETE], so in your case: <Desktop>\[FORCE DELETE].
