The Lounge is rated Safe For Work. If you're about to post something inappropriate for a shared office environment, then don't post it. No ads, no abuse, and no programming questions. Trolling, (political, climate, religious or whatever) will result in your account being removed.
I hate when you are forced to give Full Control to folder to someone because they are a Very Important Person, and then they go in and take ownership and then remove all other users from any sort of access (to include Administrators), and then they go away or die or something and NO ONE can get into the folder ever again.
And then you get a ticket asking you to restore access to the folder.
We won't sit down.
We won't shut up.
We won't go quietly away.

Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Put the drive as a slave in another machine (in other words, don't boot from it), and disconnected from any LAN and not part of any domain. The user SID won't be recognized as a local or domain user. You might have a better chance of resetting ownership under that scenario.
