"Are you sure you want to copy or move files to this folder? You should only copy or move files from locations that you trust."

I'm getting this warning when I copy a file from the network to my local drive. A solution I've found says to add the location to my list of trusted sites in IE, but this is not a url, this is a network folder.

i think you hav to give certain permission to your network folder. maybe your username should have full control permssion if you want to  copy,paste, and delete and etc on the network folder.

if u think my suggestion is right then i would explain how to go through it.

I'm only copying from the network folder and pasting to local. I'm admin on the local machine. I can copy between network folders and from local to network without any such message. I'm pretty sure I already have full control of the network folder, but should that matter?

I only get the message if copy by holding ctrl and dragging and dropping. If I copy and paste, I don't get the message.

hopeleonie - no, doesn't help. I can't change my profile to a Roaming Terminal Services profile. I do have drag and drop enabled in IE.

My bad. I had typed the volume name into the trusted sites, not the server name. Problem solved.
