Greeting Experts:

I need help with a String to copy a file from one remote “source”  computer “source” (Network Share “localhost\Share”) to the remote  “Destination” computer” (Network Share “localhost\C$”). When I attempt to use the following PowerShell string (Copy-Item -Path "\\Server\mbam" -Destination \\Server\C$) I get the following error (marked No#1 below) getting access denied for Destination computer.. When I attempt to use (Copy-Item -Path "\\Server\mbam" -Destination \\Server\C$  -Credential $Creds) I get a different error message (marked NO#2 below). Can somebody Please give me in idea of what I am doing wrong and what I can do to correct it….  

Copy-Item -Path "\\Server\mbam" -Destination "\\Server\C$" -Credential $Creds
