Windows 7: Unable to Display Current Owner!

Unable to Display Current Owner!

I am accessing another computer by read/write rights to specific folders.
Today, I was at the host computer and I saw a file, that I deleted before, still there.
When I was permanently deleting it, it was going off; but when I refresh, it was coming back.
When I tried to just delete - recycle - it, it told me that I didn't have the rights to do it.
When I checked the security options from the properties, it showed the owner as "Unable to display current owner" and didn't let me to change the owner or delete the file.
What can I do in these kind of situations when current owner cannot be displayed or changed?
What could be causing this?
(I understand the file can come from/to host computer, remote computer, and one of the external drives which may have a different owner -remote computer controls all the external drives, just some of the external drives has a creator owner in permissions also)

Try resetting all the privileges on the drive you are changing. perhaps even reset it's name on the network. I had this issue the other day and that fixed it.

The problem got solved this time. I believe that the remote connection was on idle, so Windows couldn't complete the process before the remote control session ended.

Unable to display current owner
I suspect this to be network-related, offline-related and possibly to an abandoned account. Can someone shed some light on this?
