I have a batch file that will copy everything from one directory on my LAN to all users on the network. The problem is ther is two files that WILL NOT copy & I get an access denied error. If I rename the files they copy fine but if I name them back to the original name I get the error. The files I am copying are .wpt & .wcm file extensions for Word Perfect as are all the other files that copy correctly....I am the domain admin & have rights to everything & it does this when I try to do it or as a domain user (which I have set to FULL security permissions) to try to get this to work...Does anyone have any ideas?

I would assume that the destination files are flagged as read only? Or there are specific permissions set on each file in the destination folders? (I would think the former is more likely)
