SBS 2003 - File permission problems after hard power outage

SBS 2003 - We had a power failure and the server did not shutdown cleanly on the battery.  It took a whole day for the shared files to come back but they did eventually.  What I am finding is that some of the directories have messed up permissions and the files as well.

I can take ownership of most and by hand change things but some other files I get an out of disk space error when I try to.  Any ideas?  These are mostly word documents, they may have been open at the time of the power outage, any thoughts?

start by running chkdsk with the /f option to check and fix file errors.

Chkdsk /f as suggested with a restart.
Is this Raid?

It is a software raid.  Yes I will do a checkdisk this evening when I can take the server down.

With hardware Raid you might have to run a repair to add drivers with F6.
With software raid ...depends. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.
