    To all the expert for help,

    I try To take ownership a folder as below but failed.

    " Right-click the folder that you want to take ownership of, and then
    click Properties.
    <LI class=step>Click the Security tab, click Advanced, and then click
    the Owner tab.
    <LI class=step>Click Edit. [image:

    If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation,
    type the password or provide confirmation.
    <LI class=step>Click the name of the person you want to give
    ownership to.
    <LI class=step>If you want that person to be the owner of files and
    subfolders in this folder, select the Replace owner on subcontainers
    and objects check box.
    - Click OK. "
    However, if i try to take owership of all those file within a folder one
    by one, then i can do it.

    The problem is , i have few hundred files,video and etc to take over.
    How can i do it in a faster way. How can i remove the ownership problem
    forever.

    Thanks for reading
