Best Practice advice: Moving data on file server while live.

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?

Cheers.

thanks for everyone's advice.

jpgobert's first comment was most applicable to the situation I was dealing with but all your comments were helpful.

I would love to give you all the points but I have decided to give most of the lions share to jpgobert and distribute the rest accordingly.
