By default administrators of the operating system you are using to access
the drive can take ownership and grant themselves permissions to the
drive/folder. So logon as a local administrator and take ownership and you
should be in business. Go to the drive folder and select
properties/security/advanced/owner and change owner to administrators. Be
sure to select that the change be propagated to child objects via the
checkbox before you apply. After you are owner you can change
ermissions. --- Steve
