W2000 File Restore / Permission problem

I have recently restored a directory from Tape (Veritas) from a production server to a backup server.

The folder that I backed did not have the actual user account created when I restored the directory.

When I try to delete this folder (as administrator) I get the following message;

"Cannot delete My Pictures: Access is denied.  The source file may be in use."

I know for certain that the file is not in use.

I have tried to take ownership of this folder but don't really know what to do.

I believe this is a permission problem but don't know how to resolve it.
