I have a Windows 2008 R2 Server that I have just copied files over to using Robocopy with permissions then I realized I had the wrong location but when I went to delete the directory it wouldn’t let me I got an error that said [You need permissions to perform this action, you require permissions from Administrators to make this change to this folder] but I am log in as the administrator. I thin some of theses file were created on a Mac at one time.

Right-hand click on the files (or, better, its root folder).

Go to Properties - Security - Advanced.

Go to Owner - Edit. Select the appropriate owner and tick "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects".

Click OK, and OK the relevant dialog boxes.

Afterwards, go to Permissions tab - Edit - and re-set the permissions appropriately.
