Server 2003 folder security rights lost

I have server 2003 on a domain and have removed all security rights to a folder. I am a domain administrator but can not change the rights or add rights or look in the folder.

How can I fix the rights.

Thanks

By the way: You may get a popup saying you cannot view the permission, but can take ownership (when you go to the security tab the first time), this is fine, click ok and do the rest of the steps.

Right click on the folder and go to properties.
Go to the security tab
Click on advanced
Go to the owner tab
Change Owner to yourself, domain admins etc. You can set it to replicate on subcontainers and objects (this is subfolders and files).
OK.Apply all the way out

Go in to properties ans security again and you should have permission to add people now, including yourself.
