Not able to remove a redirected folder in Windows 2012.

I have a "c:\Userdata" folder on a Windows 2012 server which contains subfolders of users' folders.  They were created using a folder redirection group policy.  

I am trying to remove a user subfolder under c:\userdata from a domain admin logon to the server.  I cannot remove it.  The message is "You need permission of that user to do so".  I then take ownership and grant domain admin right to that user subfolder in c:\userdata, I still cannot remove it as a domain administrator.

Please advise if any step I have missed.

After taking ownership, you need to replace/reset the permissions on all of the subfolders below the folder you just took ownership of.
