    [Solved] Permission Problems delete some files / folders

    I am attempting to delete some files/folders from a Windows 2008 File Server that originated from another Windows File Server (on a different Domain) and were copied across using Robocopy.

    The bottom line is that the permissions of the files/folders are still as they were from the other domain.

    Therefore when I attempt to delete them and/or change permissions I can't, as the Domain Admin has no access.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    Can you not do a "Take Ownership"? Then you should auto get the permissions?

    I used Unlocker 1.9.1 software in the end, although it did state it could not delete the files/folders and prompted to try again after reboot.
    But after checking again (with no reboot), the files/folders had been removed.

    Initially I could not access any of the security or ownership tabs of the files/folders in question, hence the original request.
