Accessing shared folder via Windows 7, with root level?

Hi guys!

I'm attacking my first question with this one here's the context:

We have a Server, on Red hat 3.3, which has an ERP running on it. There's already a Samba configured on it. So we want to backup this:

-etc folder
-software files database
-var folder

Actually, it goes fine to all except the database (Which I think I will need to stop a service so it stop accessing the file) and the etc/var folder. I get Access is denied from my backup software.

On samba, it is configure in the workgroup same name as the domain, and in Active Directory, we have the username and password. I can access the shared folder with that user.

My question is, how can I check if the user has the root level over Samba? Is there anything else I can look for?

Thanks for any help, it will be greatly appreciated
