I get the following error message when trying to open a copied file: "windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."
When I transfer a downloaded file (via a UNC path) from my Windows XP Pro SP3 desktop to share on a Windows 2003 Server, and then try to open the file from the server i get the above error message. However, when I download from the Win2003 server to the Win2003 server I can open the file with no problems.
This happens even if I save directly to the share from the website that I'm downloading from.
This wouldn't be a problem but sometimes I cannot download correctly on the Server and I have to download first on the WinXP Pro SP3 machine and then transfer to the Server.
Things I have checked:
Permissions and ownership on the file properties.
I am logged in as Administrator on the Server
I am logged in as a Administrator on the XP machine. (in the Admin group)
The owner is Administrator
Permissions to Administrator for "Allow ALL"
