Windows 7: Destination Folder Access Denied

08 Jun 2011   #1

Destination Folder Access Denied

I'm having an issue with folder access permissions.

I have created a folder within my documents that i have called "S Drive" I then set the sharing on that folder to allow network access.

From the same computer i then mapped a network drive and pointed it at this new folder i had just created. (i do this from time to time as I'm a coder and i often need to simulate a specific network drive and folder structure, without having the bother of the actual network overhead)

I could then access this folder on my local harddrive as if it was a drive it's self.

So far so good.

I then created the correct folder structure in my new drive. (S:\)

However when i tried to copy a file to one of the folders in my drive i get the "Destination Folder Access Denied" error stating that i need permission to perform this action. I have checked all the security settings and I have full access to the Drive, the folder and the source file. I am the owner of all three but for some reason windows won't let me copy the file.

To clarify:

The folder i am copying from is on my local hard drive. I have owner access premissions to this folder with full control.
The file I am trying to copy is on my local hard drive. I have owner access permissions for this file with full control.
The folder I am trying to copy to is on my local hard drive (albeit mapped as a network folder) i have owner access to this folder with full control.

In short windows is preventing me from accessing and copying a file that i created from a folder that I created to another folder that i created on my local hard drive that i have full and complete permissions to access.

I am an adminsitrator on the computer and i have completely disabled user access control.

Can anyone help.
