Deleting a User Account

You delete a user account to remove it from a vault. This does not remove the user name and password from the server. The user account can continue to be active in another vault.

To delete a user account:

  1. Ensure that the user has no files checked out in the vault.
  2. Expand Users, right-click the user account, and select Delete.
  3. When prompted, confirm the deletion by clicking Yes.

    The user account is removed from the vault.

    A deleted user account still appears up in the History dialog box, with the added information that the user account is deleted.
