When setting permissions make sure in advanced page to check the box that says that you check to replace permissions on all. Do this on source files and folders and target. You can use xcopy /c/s/e to copy from a prompt to continue copying with out stoping if the files are in use or corrupt.

Might want to verified Windows doesn't think these files/folders are still open.  I have had issue in the past where they got stuck as open files when in reality they were not.

Computer management
Shared folder
Open files

Its work out for me after creating a new folder at other drive on same server and copied the data into new folder and then share it again on network.

lionelmm your solution were closed, creating a folder on the same drive didn’t work out, it could be because of inherited permission. Thanks
