I have a folder in a win2k8 server which cannot be deleted.  I login to the server as an domain admin, go to the folder propertie, security and see "To continue, you must be an administrative user with permission to view the object's security properties.  Do you want to continue?"

When I press CONTINUE and select the domain admin, I am seeing message "unable to set new owner on the folder.  Access is denied".

Please advise if you have some idea.

thx.
