I have a sub folder on a data partition NTFS that I can not see the security tab on or take onership. I can see it on the folder before but not this one. I selcted replace permissions on all subfolders from the folder before and I get access denined. I am logged in with a domain admin accout and a also tried local admin account. Takeown.exe does not work access denided. I removed all permissions at the root of the drive and reassigned them no go. How can I take ownership of this sub directory?

That's odd that you can't even see the security tab on the folder in question.  I would run a chkdsk /f on that volume, and I might also try to use an ubuntu live cd to see if I can get at the contents via linux.
