I have 2 windows 2000 servers. Im am having some problems with our file server not our DC. There are some folders that I have restored to here and these folders have no permissions to anyone. I need to at least give administrative permissions to them is there anyway to get around this roblem I am having?

Thank you,
Jason Ortiz

As an administrator on the server you can take ownership of the folder; this will automatically give you access to adjust permissions.  Open the folder's Property page, click the Security tab, and then the Advanced button.  Click the Owner tab in the new window.  Choose the account you wish to give ownership to (usually the account you're logged in with and the local administrators group are shown) then click Ok.  You should probably check the "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects" box as well to avoid problems with subfolder or files.  Once you're back at the security window (it may take a few minutes, depending on the number of sub-folders and the speed of your server) add the permissions you want and click Ok.  If you have problems with subfolders after this you can use the Advanced tab again to force the permissions on all sub folders (Reset permissions on all child objects...).
