Are you sure that the files are not in use?

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.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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.
