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.

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.
