Try to copy the file to the desktop of the server then try to copy the file to the folder where you want it.

you may also check the rights of the parent folders, and espetially the drive's root, and obviously check you are allowed to read the original files.

using filemon from sysinternals (free, malware free and available on microsoft's technet) may help you to detect what exactly is forbidden.

forget about copying the file to the desktop first. even microsoft does not have security bugs that huge.

btw, why the hell is this thread in bourne shell scripting ???
