Tried it both ways. As I said, other folders seem to behave properly when the owner is changed. I've come to the conclusion that it must have had no permissions for anybody to start with. So it just looked like it had deleted all the old permissions when I took ownership.

Well, after taking ownership, I can't see any permisssions except for the account that just took ownership. Other folders seem to behave properly. I suppose it's possible that the folder was created without any permissions for anybody or had them all stripped out but it seems odd though.

So the only way to find out who currently owns the file and what permissions they need is to destroy those permissions and see who complains? That's insane.

I was assuming there was some sort of global "can read/change permissions" setting similar to the "take ownership" one.

Can I add that permission to the administrators group?
