Can not copy files in windows 2000 recieve access denied
Posted on 2006-05-30
I have a windows 2000 server and log in with administrator rights , within a shared folder (public) everybody has read and write access. But when I try to copy folders i get a message saying "access denied" in copying certain folders. And a little confused why I'm not getting this message since I'm logged in as administrator.
So this is what i tried, I looked to see if there were any open sessions to see if they are any network users using this file and there are none.
So i looked at the permissions on the root folder called Public and it says I have full ownership of the folder. I did not re initialize the take ownership to propogate ownership to the "child directories" due to there are permissions i need to enforce since the server is still working in production and trying to migrate from an old 2000 server to 2003 Server (SBS Premium edition).
What worked but is not really reasonable is ran ntbackup and selected the folder to backup data but it's too much data and take too long. It's about 83 Gigs of data I'm trying to copy, I can if need be go through and get it down but I rather copy the data first and then worry about deleting the data I don't need later.
Thanks in Advance
