Why am I getting a Code 32 using Richcopy to copy data?

I am using Richcopy to copy 1.82TB of data from a WD 2TB MyBook connected to a Server 2003 R2 Standard box via USB to an 8TB WD ShareSpace on my network.  It seems to be working and is actively copying the files.  Most of the files copied, so far are the correct size, etc but some of them are slightly smaller.

I am also seeing a code 32 error in Rchcopy that says, "The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process".  I have verified I don't have any shares in the source but can't find any info on the code 32.

Does anybody have any experience with this?

I am looking a cutting my losses and getting robocopy going.  Would this syntax be correct for the scenerio above?  

robocopy \\E:\Archives_HW11521 \\Y: /sec /w:1 /r:1 /log:c:\temp\logfile.txt

The destination drive is mapped as E: and the folder is Archives_HW11521.  The 8TB network drive is mapped as the Y: drive on the server.  I am looking to make a copy while maintaining the file structure and permissions and not blowing anything up.

The issue was caused by a process trying to run on my box connected to the drive.  Once I got my hands around that I was able to get it kicked off.
