Default Did the dumbest thing in my life

Okay i have recently found this command to make the files inaccessible and undeletable

Command : cacls filename /e /c /d %username%

Now heres the the dumb part, I thought it might be cool to do the same on the network hard drives where there are some folders I dont want tampering. I've accidently made the network hard drive inaccessible and using the command:

cacls Z:\ /e /c /g %username%:f

is useless and give me access denied to the harddrive.
Ive tried going into command prompt in administrator mode and used the same command but cacls is somewhat deprecated and recommends using icacls.

Bottom line I need to access the network hard drive which I've stupidly locked and there is no way i can get around it. I would appreciate the help and if there is a solution to this it would be a very big lesson that I've learnt.


EDIT: All is good now, there was a weekly IT check up and the expert fixed it up. Dont know how to close this but the problem is now solved.
