Can you copy these files when logged on locally on the server? Then check the *share* permissions on the share you're using to access the server. A new share in W2k3 by default only has Read permissions for Everyone; change that to Full Access if it's still set as Read.

Hi Drakeshe,
These are 2 different folders and we are trying to copy the files from one which is not in use to the one which is in use.

Hi OBDA,
I did not check by logging in locally. Let me try this......This folder has full permission to the user who is trying to copy.

Hi,

This issue is resolved after re-assigning the permissions to the user and allopwing the inheritance from parent to the child folders.

Thanks for all your help. This site is so helpful.
