When you have ownership issues, you can always use takeown:
TAKEOWN [/S system [/U username [/P [password]]]]
/F filename [/A] [/R [/D prompt]]
This tool allows an administrator to recover access to a file that
was denied by re-assigning file ownership.
/S system Specifies the remote system to
/U [domain\]user Specifies the user context under
which the command should execute.
/P [password] Specifies the password for the
given user context.
Prompts for input if omitted.
/F filename Specifies the filename or directory
name pattern. Wildcard "*" can be used
to specify the pattern. Allows
/A Gives ownership to the administrators
group instead of the current user.
/R Recurse: instructs tool to operate on
files in specified directory and all
/D prompt Default answer used when the current user
does not have the "list folder" permission
on a directory. This occurs while operating
recursively (/R) on sub-directories. Valid
values "Y" to take ownership or "N" to skip.
/SKIPSL Do not follow symbolic links.
Only applicable with /R.
/? Displays this help message.
NOTE: 1) If /A is not specified, file ownership will be given to the
current logged on user.
2) Mixed patterns using "?" and "*" are not supported.
3) /D is used to suppress the confirmation prompt.
