I have a folder on one of my hard drives,
P:\csharp\aperture\keystone\src\Keystone, which I want to delete but cannot. I have tried numerous different ways to change/reset permissions and I still cannot delete this folder.

I don't have read privileges.
It can't show the owner:
If I try to change the owner, I don't have permission to view or edit the object:
What is really strange is that I created the folder with my user, so I should be the effective owner. I have tried to delete the user as Administrator, but I can't do that either. I can't even delete the folder as
P:\csharp\aperture\keystone\src>whoami /user USER INFORMATION ---------------- User Name SID =================== ======== nt authority\system S-1-5-18 P:\csharp\aperture\keystone\src>rmdir /S Keystone Keystone, Are you sure (Y/N)? Y Access is denied.
How can I delete this folder that I created?
