Determine size of folders

Specs: Windows 2003 R2, 4ghz/128gb
I cannot determine the size of some profile
folders. It says that they are 0 byte but when I
check the security, it says that I do not have
permission even though the Domain admin group
has permission and I am in that group. This is
also on a 2008 R2 file cluster.

Thank you,

This often happens when your trying to check profiles that have higher permissions than the current one your on now.

What would fix this is taking ownership of the file, and you can do that in the same box as the sharing properties; there is an option in there to take ownership of the file. Once this is done, you'll have full access to it.

As a side question.. does it only do it with that one profile?

Unfortunately, if I take ownership of the files, it messes up the roaming profiles. Is there another way to resolve this issue?

Thank you,
