Acces denied error need help!!! my Backup exec jobs are failing what do i do to access or delete the folder?

I recently had a Client decide to clean up his user shares directory on the server on his own, and after moving and creating new folders not using the SBS wizard) to organize all users there is one user folder which remains and gives an access denied error when I try to access it, I am also unable to change security properties or take ownership as a domain admin. My boss suggested that I enable logging on that particular file and hinted that it has to be done in group policy, but as part of my learning curve wanted me to find the solution on my own.

the biggest issue I am facing with needing to deal with this problematic folder is that it is causing the daily backup of this directory to fail in Backup Exec with an access denied error.

I have done some googling, but not easily been able to find anything in particular that will help me directly. any insight or ideas would be appreciated.

How come taking ownership doesnt work? Do you have a full access administrator account?
