Destination Folder Access Denied

Depends on the folder you are copying to. Do you have permissions for the
folder?
Does the folder really exist? There are some 'folders' listed in Windows
Explorer that do not really exist, like Documents and Settings. They are
junctions that are there for compatibility reasons and you have to copy to
the real folder.

Ok
I absolutely realize what a real folder is. This issue is not about virtual
or imaginry folders, I can for example create a folder test and try to copy
anything from another pc into that from the Vista workstation I get
destination folder access denied


thanks

like Wayne, I am very aware of what "real" folders are. I am technically
very capable, and can build a pc from scratch, and load any OS you'd care to
name.

Any answer to this? I am copying a couple files from another computer on my
network. yes, the files exist. I am copying them to a folder on my local
drive. I get the 'denied' message on any and all folders.

any help would be appreciated.

I've read in another thread somewhere that this issue was showing up when a
certain antivirus product was running... can't remember if it was the source
or the destination computer that was causing the problem.

Try disabling your antivirus solutions and see if that helps.

Jimmy - Thanks. However, all I have running is Windows Defender.

Just to ensure that we are on the same page, here is the detailed issue.

1. From my Vista computer, I connect across to my own network two a XP
computer. I have full permissions to that computer. \
2. I browse to the location where the files are. (The files are present. I
can go to the XP machine and run them from there.)
3. On my Vista machine, in a separate file explorer window, I browse to the
local directory where I want to drop the new files.
4. I dragged the files from one explorer window to another.
5. I received the error.

I have tried with numerous directories, with the same result. However, if I
FTP to the XP machine, I can easily retrieve the files into any local Vista
directory that I choose.

Ok ...

Just to confirm - you received access denied when trying to drag to say your
desktop (where you can easily confirm that you can create a new file on that
desktop and have permission, but it still returns access denied).

Just out of curiosity, try dragging one of those restricted files to the
following folder:

%userprofile%\AppData\LocalLow\

And see if that works.

I've tried that and no results. Access denied!

I've been searching for the solution for a long time and i've realised that
there's so many people with the same problem! No one had solved the issue!
I've just asking for a microsoft official position to this.

If someone find a solution to this, please tell us!!

I am having the same issue as well.

XP Pro to Vista Ultimate. I have full rights to the files and folders on
both machines. When I copy a folder it is sucessfully created on the Vista
machine but the files will cause the "Destination Folder Access Denied"
dialog to pop.

If/when you have anymore suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Charlie

Look at the permissions of the folder. If EVERYONE is listed remove it.

Thank you for the suggestion. The EVERYONE group has no permissions. The
only ones listed with permissions are SYSTEM, myself, and administrators.
All with full control.

Just for the record, and anyone who references this thread in the future, I
have tested to see if this issue was a result of me accessing the files via
the administrative share of the XP machine, e.g.
\\xpmachine\c$\mydocs\yadda. I wanted to test to see if MS had locked this
down in some fashion. I have created a share, e.g.
\\xpmachine\mydocs\yadda, attempted to copy the files, and still received
the same "Destination folder access denied" dialog.

Thanks again,
Charlie

Sorry. I should have included earlier that EVERYONE is not listed, much
less has any permissions.

Thanks,

Okay guys, I've been having the same problem, but I finally figured it
out. I registered here just to help you guys out. Hopefully your
problem with access being denied is the same as mine.

Here is the fix:

Go to control panel
go to folder options
go to the view tab
click "Do not show hidden files and folders"

This fixed my issue with access being denied to folders. Hopefully
that will help you guys out as well.

I have the same problem, and none of these solutions has helped.

Finally, I just decided to install the freeware FolderShare
(www.foldershare.com) on each of my computers and allow that program to sync
files via the Internet in the background. It's a kludge, but it's less
painful than everything else I've tried.
