I have copied some files from an XP computer to a PC running Windows 7. I am logged on as a user who is marked as an Administrator.

When I try to access the directory, I am told I don't have permission. Understandable, but what is odd is that I as an administrator don't have access to take ownership of the files. I don't have permission to add users in the ACL or to take ownership, indeed such options are greyed out.

Why as an administrator user can I not take ownership of files?
