Finding Orphaned folders

I have a NetWare Cluster connected to a SAN holding all the data for users. We have a Volume for User's Home Directories on the SAN. When we delete the users after termination, I don't have a process to delete/move the user's home directory from the SAN. Besides a process to follow the user term and delete/move the directory, is there a utility to find orphaned folders on a NetWare NSS volume?

Thanks,

casolver

You can do it with NDIR - look for files with an owner of "N/A" - so
memory it's "ndir *.* /DO /S" will do subdirectories, to check just the
current level, omit the /S

should be easy enough to throw together some vbscript to do that - use
the NWVOLA.OCX control from the NDK to go though the homedir folder(s)
looking for subdirs where the owner is null....
