Can't delete folder on network share

Hello All,

I have a network share on an appliance that we can't delete unless we delete all the files within the folder first which can be cumbersome with multi-level folder structures.

I'm currently running Windows 7 and a domain admin. Domain admin and myself are both in the security tab to allow all. When I try to delete the folder I get the error 'You need permission to perform this action." (screen attached). I have tried taking ownership and also changing the security information in the properties / security tab.

It's seems like the delete function is working from bottom-up instead of top-down.

Anyone else run into this?

What kind of appliance is this? Is it domain-joined (if no, is it possible to join it)?

Yes, it is domain joined. It's an Imation Infinivault Model 30.

We have joined it to the domain and put it in it's own OU with inheritance off per their documentation. That's about all they have for AD stuff. I told them about this error and they said it was a Microsoft 7/8/2008 issue...

This ended up being an issue with the manufacturing software.
