TAKEOWN – Windows CMD Command

Take ownership of a file (Windows 2003/7/2008).

If the /a parameter is not specified, file ownership is given to the user who is currently logged on to the computer.

Mixed patterns using (? and *) are not supported by the takeown command.

After changing the owner for a file/folder, you can then assign full permissions to the files and subsequently read or delete them.
