are you sure that the file is not in use by any of your users?
can you rename the file or not?

and what about CUT / Paste then?

but anyway, this realy looks like file permissions are not set correctly. plz double ensure the administrator realy has full access, also, check that you are not giving rights only to local admin but the domain admin, cause i guess your logged on with the domain admin.

I would agree with Gilge, I had the same problem and i had to use software unlocker to remote lock.  I fould out that my backup software was holding them.

Problem was found to be several corrupt password protected word and excel files. The user managing the files had done something with the files that hey were not sure of which caused the files to display 0bytes. I deleted all the 0byte files and the copy completed successfully.
