Have a folder on the server that just began giving this error when adjusting user permissions, seems like permissions take affect but not after locking up and giving the error.

Most likely someone adjusted the Owner of the folder.  Do this to check who the owner is...

Right Click Folder > Properties > Security Tab > Advanced > Owner Tab

If the correct person is already there, then disregard this, but my guess is that someone who shouldn't be there is there.  In that case you will need to click Edit then in the box that pops up, highlight your name in the box below and click on Other Users or Groups and put your name in the next box, hit ok, make sure replace owner on all subcontainers is checked, then hit ok, ok, ok.

Let me know results.

only way I got this to work was turn off the UAC on the server. not crazy about doing it but once I did it I could copy data fine. I took ownership but it didn't make a difference.
