I am trying to delete some obsolete files while logged in as administrator. I receive the following error:
Error 303: You do not have adequate permissions to delete this file.
These files have been moved to a 'trash' folder and the links have been broken. I can delete other files that are not obsolete. I have checked the folder permissions and the permissions on the obsolete state, and admin has delete privelages to both. Anything else that could cause me not to be able to delete these files? I really need them gone so I can enforce unique filenames.
logged in as admin
Vault Workgroup 2012
client is running on windows XP 64bit
Solved! Go to Solution.
In Out of Box settings, state security of Obsolete is set to readonly to everyone, you may get the lock icon on the main view for this kind of files.
If you want to perform delete operation on files in Obsolete state, you can modify the security setting for obsolete state.
e.g. remove Everyone from access control list, add Administrator (user or group) allowto all permission, and other users/Groups readonly permissions.
Or, you could check on 'No State-based security' if you want regardless state control for obsoleted file. Thus every user in Administrator or Document Editor (Level2) role be able to delete it.

B - Configure to allow administrator delete.
Hope it helps.
Thanks, this cleared it up. So if Admin group has all access and engineering has no access, then a user of both groups will have no access? That is how it seems after some experimentation.
