Hey guys,

I was hoping someone could be me some advice on what is best practice for moving data on a file server while its live?

E.g. I want to move some files from folder d:\folder\subfolder to e:\folder and I want to make sure that while the move is in progress no users other than myself can access the source location.

Is just removing the security permission for 'everyone' usually sufficient and best?
