Does anyone know how to force a permissions change on a folder in windows?

I can browse to the directory and when I click properties it shows no size and only two tabs, general and customize.

I have been trying to push the permissions down from the folder above and it works for the other folders in the directory but not the 1 folder.

I tried to replace permissions entries on all child objects
I tried removing inherited permissions from parent to propagate.
I tried to take ownership
I tried deleting the folder
I tried attrib –R command in dos

OS is Windows Server 2003. Not in a domain.

Sometimes the errors you get are clues, what where they in any case?
Of course your approaches where correct and should have worked.

You might be better off to copy the data in it to a temporary folder. Delete and then re-create the original folder and transfer the data back in to it.
