How do I delete Roxio Retrospect 7.6 back up files?

I am trying to delete Roxio Retrospect backup files on my hard drive. I need a college course in this or something. I tried to delete them all manually from my backup 1TB network drive, but they won't all delete. I "need permission". I am "an Administrator," but my Vista OS doesn't seem concerned. I tried using File Assassin, but it doesn't "see" the files. I tried a program that lets me "Take Ownership" -- fail. This Retrospect is a nightmare that I want to end. Can anyone help?

My experience is...creating backup files from software...results in files where the user has to take ownership of the files...in order to delete them :).

I have a program that allows you to "take ownership" of the file. This may be a way of doing what you are showing me in the link, but without having to do all the work yourself. It still doesn't help.

You could give Revo Uninstaller (freeware version) a try.
