I copy a folder from a shared folder on the network. Now I tried to delete it but it didn't allow me.
I also took the ownership and made sure me has the full control. Also "replace all child object permission with inheritable permission from this object". But it still doesn't allow me to delete it. Please see my screenshot.

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator and navigate to the folder. See if you can delete the contents of the folder with the DEL command. Then back up one level and delete the folder with the DEL command.

I would also suggest having the SYSTEM and the Administrator role permissions in addition to your [Henry] user. Most likey the missing SYSTEM account on that folder is what is causing the issue...

It could be the way Windows Explorer handles internal permissions.

I use DEL or Total Commander to delete picky folders.

I believe i answered your last question with my last response. If you had taken a look at the owner attribute within the advanced tab, most likely it was setup as Administrator or SYSTEM.

Hi Smarturtle, as I mentioned in my original post. I already took the ownership and assigned to myself. I would like to know what was the reason I couldn't delete it unless I use command line...

The author said "I am able to delete using the command -> rd /s/q "rd /s/q" and I pointed to using a command line to delete  (http:#a40218403) and the author confirmed later that the command line worked. So I think I have answered this question.
