The TakeOwnerShipEx method obtains ownership of the logical file specified in the object path. If the logical file is actually a directory, then this method will act recursively, taking ownership of all the files and sub-directories the directory contains. TakeOwnerShipEx returns an integer value of 0 on success, and any other number to indicate an error. TakeOwnerShipEx is an extended version of the TakeOwnerShip method.

It returns one of the following integer values:


UInt32 ReturnValue = TakeOwnerShipEx(String StartFileName, Boolean Recursive)
