Cannot copy files: Access Denied
Posted on 2006-04-14
Does anyone have a method for copying files no matter what the permissions etc etc.
I am trying to copy some old user shares to a different share so I can burn them to a CD/DVD and it seems to be nearly impossible.
I have taken ownership of the files, allowed inheritable permissions to propagate, even added my own user account with Full control permissions.
I have even tried logging in locally to the server as the admin and still no luck.
I heard that ROBOCOPY would copy files no matter what and it even gives me a Access Denied error.
Whate gives here? I'm the freakin admin and I cant even move my own files. I hope i'm missing something really easy here because im about to pull my hair out. Copying files shouldnt be this hard.
Any help would be much appreciated.
