cannot move, delete, copy, cut a file within a directory

I have a file .rpt that is located on my windows2003 server and when I go to just that one file and right click on it and do any of the following copy, cut, move, delete, or go to properties and click on security it basically says I don't have permissions to view, edit current permission settings.... It also says when I try to copy, cut or delete Access Denied: Make sure disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is currently not in use...... I have already rebooted the server and I still get this message... How do I get access back to this file??

It appears that the file might indeed be in use... tell us more about the file (the name, path, etc)    We might be able to figure out what's "holding it hostage"

The file is not in use, I can't even change the permissions on it, it says I don't have owner ship on it, yet I am the administrator of the server it resides on... I guess thats what I am not understanding.....How does the file change ownership??

the file name is x_portland_Arinv2.rpt

the path is \\pdx-forefront\ffwin\reports\x_portland_Arinv2.rpt

OK... then let's try to "take ownership" of the file, and see if that works
