Problems with Folder Permissions on W2K

  1. One of my WM's is has a user that is trying to deleate folders from a machine and is unable to because in the permissions the user deleated "everyone" out of there. Now no one is able to delete or even access these folders any more. Even if you log on as admin it is giving an "access denied" error. Any ideas?

    Right-click the directory, select Security tab, then Advanced, Owner, change owner to Administrator.

    Tried it...didn't work???

    She did that before but she has no permissions to see who has permissions or to make herself the owner. I should have mentioned that in my last post, sorry.

    Rightclick that directory, select Sharing. Can you change any settings there?
