My first thought is that you are currently logged in with a user against the directory you want to disable. You can't do that. You need to ensure you are logged in with a user from another directory and then you can disable/delete the other user directory.

Thanks ! ... Of course, you are right !

It is ok.


You need to click on the blue arrow to make it 2nd on the list – i.e. not your primary user directory. You should then see a link to disable it.
