ROBOCOPY ERROR 5 (0x00000005)


I am getting Error ERROR 5 (0x00000005) when trying to copy a folder from Server to a portable Hard Disk,  I am using Windows XP with and folder on 2003 with  Administrative Privilege ( E$), using Windows 7 machine will now show the error and copying work without issues !!! the weird thing copying was working fine and recently got the error. No changes done to Source Folder and no domain is being used , also have Admin Permission on the XP machine, tried multiple usb disks and got the same error for this Folder only.

Same folder is being copied to other server without issues using robocopy

This seems like a permissions issue, can you confirm the user that you are running robocopy with can access both locations. It it works on another machine then I am guessing the source of the robocopy is where the issues are.

Yes, Because the usb disk connected to my machine and Iam accessing the server with E$ permission , I can copy the folder from source to destination using Windows normal copy without issues.

Does seem to be a file permission error.  (Yes, I am repeating what was said earlier).  Possibly on Shares.

See the following thread and see if it resembles what you are doing.

Weird that you had to search for that. Set your notification setting in Kaspersky to prompt when these happens.
My Bitdefender has the same feature and I get a big, red message when it happens

No Messages, Kaspersky just deny access without notification
