Program File acess issue in Win2008


I'm having an issue on one site I have recently "inherited" to update some files in c:\Program Files on a Windows 2008 server.

Despite being logged as admin and having full control of the folder I can't seem to be copying files into the intended folder

Failing file copy
I seem to remember that Windows 2008 brings so extra protection to Program Files - am I missing something obvious here ?

(quasi) self solved: there was some bogus ACL with the source files, not destination ! Resetting security on them fixed the issue !
