I haveÃÂ a site collection withÃÂ 100+ÃÂ subsites and I needed to remove oneÃÂ the subsites. IÃÂ usually goÃÂ into the subsites site settings andÃÂ choose "delete this site" and itÃÂ has always worked without issue.
Well...I had a large site(10 GB) I needed to delete last week so I used my ususal method. The first thing I noticed was system performance tanked. You couldn't even navigate to sites. When the delete finishedÃÂ all that was gone was the security groups. All the site content was intact. I thought possibly there was a problem with the site being so large so I deleted all the libraries and lists using sharepoint designer and/or the UI. I verified nothing was in the sites recycle bin or the site collections recycle bin and tried deleting again. Same results. A colleague suggested I try deleting from the command line (stsadm.exe -o deleteweb). Results were the same.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can delete this subsite.
Thanks in AdvanceRenee
P.S. I also tried deleting from Sharepoint Designer with same result.ReneeDD
