hi friends,
   Im having a strange problem with my command line delete and move commands. Im trying to move a backup file from my local server to a shared drive on another server

move c:\backups\TestDB.bak \\Remoteserver\sharedfolder

i get access is denied error. if i use copy instead of move my file will be copied to the remote server.

copy c:\backups\TestDB.bak \\Remoteserver\sharedfolder


if i want to delete the backup file on my local server, im again getting the error i got earlier

del c:\BackUps\TestDB.bak

Why am i getting this error. it is very strange as im the Admin on my local machine. but still i cannot delete the file from the command line

Please help

Thanks

The file is read-only.
Try executing this:
attrib -r c:\backups\TestDB.bak
and then try moving or deleting it.

thanks guys for trying to help me...I read some where that move across volumes is not allowed. so im doing it in a 2 step process. copy the file to remote server and delete the local copy.

earlier my delete on local server didnt work. but my friend told me that even if i am adminstator on local machine, i wont be logged in as admin to cmd prompt. so right clicked on cmd script icon and logged in as admin and it is working now..

thanks again for your time

Uhh, Vista. Please provide OS info next time you post a question, so the experts can answer quick and correct.

BTW, move works crossing drives. Internally, it does the same as you would - first copy, after success delete the source.
