Problem with permissions/ownership and folder deletion
I recently installed a fresh copy of Win 7 on my second HD solely for the purposes of troubleshooting a pesky video card. It worked -- I confirmed the card works, so I reformatted my SSD and reinstalled Windows 7. However, now I'm left with several unwanted folders on my storage HD--namely, the Windows folder, the 2 Program Files folders, and a few others (Users, PerfLogs) that I'd rather delete.
I googled around and read about how to change ownership from TrustedInstaller to my user account, and I set permissions to 'full control.' However I'm still getting essentially the same error when I try to delete the folders -- except now it's telling me that I need permission from myself!
I also tried what I believe is the command line version of the same strategy, but got a bunch of 'Access denied' errors for my troubles.
D:\> attrib -s -h -r "Program Files"
D:\> rd /s /q "Program Files"
Anyone have another approach I can try?
