Folder ownership / How to recover it?

New member | Level 2

I was working with a set of folders inside a bigger one when I "transfered" the ownership of a folder to another user (inside our group, not "big" deal).
The problem is… this user has not enough space in her account and I need to get the ownership back in order to continue with the project!!

Is there a way to reasign the ownership of that folder to my user?! When we see the folder with her user, we don't see an option for doing that! And it was SOOO easy to make the initial mistake…

When she is logged in with her user name, would she be able to change the ownership back to your user name by following the directions outlined here
