Hi,

Have you tried to add the permissions back on the gpo? Click on any working GPO, then select the "Delegation" tab, then "Advanced" to compare the group membership. Add the same group on your testGPO and then delete it.

Thanks,
Abhi...

Just add the permission back directly on the GPO object and the SYSVOL folder. DA have take owner rights
