Can't delete shared folders in Sharing preferences

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Dear all,

I upgraded to Lion and run into a strange problem, when I cleaned-up user accounts I no longer needed on my MBP: After securely deleting the home folder accounts in "Users & Groups", the (previously) shared folders are still listed in the "Shared Folders" box in "Sharing". When I klick the "-" box to remove a folder, the system asks me whether I am sure to stop sharing. But after klicking "ok" the respective folder remains listed in the box.

Do you have any ideas how I can get rid of the still listed, but no longer existing, shared folders?

Thanks in advance for your support!!

You should have stayed with the Snow Leopard OS.Lion to many bugs yet.

I have also the same problem.
You may see following message in /var/log/system.log

System Preferences[1351]: ### Error:-11003 File:/SourceCache/SharingPref/SharingPref-216/FileSharing.m Line:591

This message must be related with your problem.

Hi, BRNY

I found a man who solved this problem.
Briefly, use directory utilities (directory editor) to delete the ghost of public folder.

This site is in Japanese, sorry. But with some pictures provided there, you can figure out the detail of method.
