Windows Server 2008 can not delete folder.

If I am a member of administrators, then why can I not delete a file. Is is possible that the folder was create by the builtin administrator and that account has higher permissions?

Who is the owner of the file? Is it a system file?

The folder was a redirection folder. The user has left and I am doing cleanup. The user account was deleted. The owner is administrators. This would not be a system file.

What is the error message?

try to run the explorer as administrator and delete again. --> right click and run as administrator

The procedure works. The question whether builtin Administrator has a higher priority than administrators was not answered.
