Files not accessible after reinstalling OS and cygwin

Dear Experts,

I had windows2k and cygwin installed on my machine, and I had marked
some files as read-only (using cygwin chmod). For some reasons, I had
to reinstall windows2k. I also reinstalled cygwin in the same location
as it was installed earlier.

However the files which were marked read-only earlier are not
accessible now. They can't be deleted either. Those are huge files and
taking up the space.

Any solutions?
