Access to a directory after domain change

A folder on SBS2003 server was accessible only by me, not even by the Domain administrator.  It's a backup copy of a folder on my workstation, so the contents are not important.  A full backup of the server was done.  A completely clean reinstall of system was done.  A new domain name was chosen.  The data was restored from the backup.  The backup folder is there.  I merely want to delete it so I can create a new backup from my workstation.  Since "I" as a member of the old domain don't exist anymore, "I" can't access it.  Nor apparently can the new domain administrator (I have such privileges).  Nor can "locally workstation logged in 'I'".  How do I get access to it, even to just delete it?
