The reason I ask is because I recently made the mistake of installing Oracle 12c on my sub-performance laptop. Noticing the excessive amount of resources this added up to on startup, I decided to uninstall it.
What I failed to see through, however, was the fact that it created a new Windows user account in order for the initial installation to work out. In my case, it was mandatory because I only had an administrator account and I didn't see the need to use the built-in account. So, after failing to successfully install 12c twice, I wound up creating not just one, but two Windows user accounts. This had to do with something in regards to how Oracle sets up the Oracle Home business and whatnot, but I have no idea what any of that detailed, so I just went ahead and did it.
After uninstalling what I could in regards to Oracle and the database, I decided the next thing to do would be to remove the created users.
Having Windows 10 Home installed, I couldn't use the local users & groups view/tool to delete these from the GUI. SO, I did the next best thing and Googled a solution. In my case, I used the following command:
net user username /DELETE
When I executed the command, the console gave the response of having successfully deleted the account for both accounts specified.
To verify that this had worked, I went to the users directory located in
%SYSTEMROOT%/Users/ and came to find that the user directories were still there.
What does this mean and if I should delete them, will anything bad happen?
Can I even delete these directories?
