Cant gain access to files - domain security

In our computer domain (Win2000 ActiveDirectory), I have a folder shared over the network, and only I had access. I dumped a bunch of files in a "backup" directory. My PC crashed recently, and I have a new PC. Im trying to move my files BACK onto my PC, but I'm getting a "you don't have permission" error.

So, I went to the server, intending to re-set the permissions on the folder as administrator, but even ADMINISTRATOR doesnt have access to the backup files. I have no idea how that could have happened.

I have tried disabling inheritance from the parent (which I *CAN* access) and copying the permissions to children.
I tried just resetting permissions to administrator / "full control".

In all cases, I dont have the correct permissions.

What can I try next?

On the server open the security tab for the shared directory.
Click the advanced button.
Click on the Owner tab.
Set the Owner to your user account using the "Other Users or Groups" button.
Make sure the "Replace owner on subdirectories and objects" is checked.
Click OK
