Recently I've had to move the dropbox account location to another drive. The move went reasonably seamless however it failed to remove the files and directories in the old location.
I tried to clean that area up today, and I don't have the necessary privledges to delete them. I've logged in as administrator, local administrator, myself and still no go.
I've forced the owner of that directory and all its children to a known user (through the security tab) and still cannot delete.
The error I get is 'you need permissions to perform this action.

Any ideas on how to remove this? Obviously domain1\administrator no longer exists.
