Problem with a Job (detach - copyto - attach)

I have a job (SQL 2005, Win Server 2003 Ent) with a 3 steps:

1. EXEC sp_detach_db 'MyDB'

2. xcopy "C:\Data\*.*" c:\Backup\ /y/s/e/q/h/r               - all credentials and proxies are fine

3. EXEC sp_attach_db 'MyDB', 'C:\Data\MyDB.mdf'

First and third steps work fine, but 2nd steps gives an error "Access denied"
What I've found yet:
after 1st step the file MyDB.mdf has the only 'System' permission left;
so, the 2nd gives an error;
after 3rd step - all permissons are back (I mean 'Admins', 'Users' etc)

Help, please.

Have you tried using the Copy database wizard in Management Stdio instead?

Yes, It is sql server agent job, it own\ run by 'sa' and user has 'admin' permissions with a full control. But, as I stated above, after sp_detach_db all permissions (exept 'System') are gone. And I can get it back after sp_attach_db only. Any ideas?

Does the sql server agent service account have enough permissions to copy the file?

Sorry for the delay. I was out of country. Nmcdermaid is right. It was a permission issue. Thank you.

Might be some miscomunication here. Strictly speaking it's not the user that connects to SQL Server that needs rights its the SQL Agent.
