Domain Admin can't delete or take ownership of file
Posted on 2006-06-06
I was trying to delete some old home directories on the file server, but I have come across some folders with a single small hidden file (ntuser.pol) that won't go away.
I can see it, but I cannot open it, much less delete it. When I try to take ownership of the file, the procedure seems to work, but as soon as I try to apply permissions to the file so I can delete it, I am denied.
In the security tab, I can see that the SYSTEM account has full control, but when I log in as SYSTEM (ala psexec), I still can't delete the file (access denied).
how kill these files?
