Updated: January 21, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

To delete operator requests

  1. Open Removable Storage.

  2. On the View menu, click Full, and in the console tree, right-click Operator Requests, and then click Properties.

  3. To have all requests automatically deleted, in the Operator Requests Properties dialog box, verify that the Automatically delete completed requests check box is selected.

  4. To automatically delete failed requests also, verify that Delete failed requests is selected.

    Or, to save failed requests, click Keep failed requests.

  5. In Delete after, change the time interval as necessary for automatically deleting requests.

  6. To restore default settings, click Default.

  7. To delete all requests now, click Delete All Now.


  • To complete this procedure, you need the appropriate administrative credentials for the affected Removable Storage item. To maintain system security, rather than logging in as an administrator, log in as a user without administrative credentials, and run Removable Storage as an administrator by right-clicking the Computer Management icon, clicking Run As, and choosing an account in the local Administrators group.

  • To open Removable Storage, click Start and then click Control Panel. Double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Computer Management. In the console tree, double-click Storage and then click Removable Storage.

  • Restoring the default settings will automatically delete all requests, including failed requests, every 72 hours.

  • To delete an individual operator request, right-click the applicable request in the details pane, and then click Delete.

  • This procedure also applies for deleting items from the work queue. Right-click Work Queue in the console tree instead.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
