Cant Delete Backup Folder
My computer crashed a few days ago, and Windows made a backup of all my old
files. The backup is quite large, and I dont need anything in it, yet I
cannot delete the folder. Ive determined the problem is that all the files do
not allow the Administators to modify or delete anything. If I change the
ownership and permissions on a folder, it only effects the folder itself, any
files and subfolders are not effected.

The backup folder is very large, it contains almost 8GB, and 30,000+ files
in 6,000+ folders. Does anybody know of anyway I can delete/change the
permissions to all of these at once?
