Hi,
I have a situation with a Windows Server 2012 Essentials that has reached the limit of accounts created.

One particular user is being blocked every day at initial login in the morning.

Whenever he arrives in the office, he tries to login and the system reports his account as being blocked.

I then access the AD a unlock his account.

Every day same thing.

How can I override this?

    Sounds good, you're welcome.

    I'm not sure what folders you're asking about but unlikely that any file system cleanup would happen as a result.

    Might try removing any old inactive accounts. Get the total at 25 or under.

    Hi DSPatrick,

    Thanks for your reply.

    That's a bit unusual since there are other users in the network that don't have this issue.

    But I'll try to do that and see how it works out!

    By removing old or disabled users, will their personal folders be erase as well?

    Best Regards.
    Nelio.
