It looks like only the system has full control over folder.

Have you tried running Windows Explorer as Administrator?

I just did. Still gets access denied. Im assuming the issue is that only the system has full control but I dont want to mess with any permissions unless im sure since this is a production server.

For more info, im just trying to follow directions in link:

if you browse to the physical location c:\windows\sysvol  you can give your account permissions. Default setting is 'Trusted Installer' owns the folder.

correct you definitely do not want to change rights on sysvol.
I believe the correct place for administrative templates is C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions folder.  I am in Windows 2012 DC and that is where i would copy Office 2010 templates.  then go into group Policy Management.
I will take a look at your Doc above.

So I went to the c:\windows\sysvol\domain\policies folder on my pdc and created the folder there and gave full permissions to administrator. The folder shows up but I still get access denied when I try to add files going to \\domain\sysvol from another machine but I can go back to pdc and edit fine.
