I've got some files that I wish to delete. They are on a local hard drive. This hard drive has never been near any other operating system. I am the administrator, and the only administrator, for this machine, and every other machine this hard drive has been in. There have never even been any other administrators- not even a guest account. But Windows will not permit me to remove these files. It says that I need permission from "S-1-5-21-4140038465-826365687-30361609-1001". I've tried altering the permissions but Windows rejects me for not having permission. I don't get it. I am the administrator, and the file system should be under my complete control at all times.
How can I get rid of these files?
Now it says I need permission from myself. WTF is wrong with this thing?
