I have a folder that I'm not able to delete. The customer has a person who's responsible for the folders at this location, I'm pretty sure that he by mistake removed all groups from having access when removing inheritance.
When I attempt to open security settings for the folder I get the following error: "You do not have permission to view or edit the current permission settings for FOLDERNAME, but you can change the auditing settings." (Note: it does NOT say "take ownership or change auditing settings".)
If opening advanced options I do not see "Owner", it's not there, hence I can not take owership of the folder.
Attempting to access folder as a domain admin having "Full control" NTFS permission on the parent folder. (Checked effective permissions on parent folder, no issues.)
Attempted to reset ACL for the folder using cacls/icacls - access denied. Attempted to add myself as owner using mentioned comman line tools - access denied. Tested unlocker.exe as it's already installed on the server - access denied.
In case of relevance; the folder is located on a share belonging to a cluster resource that had been moved before I attempted to fix/delete the folder. Attempted to move resource before trying to delete folder - didn't change anything. Data physically stored on mirrored SAN disks.
As I have performed a restore of the data from the folder from before it were corrupted I have no need to "save" the folder, I just want to delete it.
