I have a directory that I cannot view, delete, or take ownership of. I get an "Access Denied" error when I attempt to take ownership. I'm a local administrator on the file server in question (Windows Server 2003 R2). Are there utilities for getting around this kind of situation? Or workarounds?

Turning Cisco Security Agent off fixed the problem. It was blocking one of the subdirectories.

A link to XcACLs would have been more helpdul than making me dig for it. I ultimately found another solution anyway.
