    Can't delete files in a directory (don't have permission)


    Hi

    I have some problem regarding deletion in one of my directrories.
    I can't delete some of my files because i don't have the necessary permissions. The problem is that i can't add my myself on the security tab because both add and remove buttons are inactive. I added myself as an owner but it didn't helped.
