I've got an old backup folder I need to delete (I know this happens a lot) and once again I'm getting the "you need permission" dialog and can't remove a couple of the folders. I've tried everything I know to get permissions, but nothing's worked. So far every user on the system (Everyone, implicitly and explicitly) has Full Control, and I also tried changing the ownership of the file (even though I'm logged in as an admin) to my personal account, the admin account, and finally to "Everyone." No changes, aside from being told I need permission from myself and from Everyone respectively.
Are there some steps I missed? Deleting the folder from cmd didn't work either, even in an admin session. Checked the other questions on here for system permissions windows 7, no luck. I can't believe Win 7 has such bad issues with permissions. Also tried
TakeOwn /F folder /R /A, no luck.
