With that answer I think you have some type of permissions problem because of the "Access is denied" error.
I'm no security (or any) expert, so my advice is wait for someone more knowledgeable to help with this.

It may be as simple as taking ownership of the source folder and all files...
But it's best to wait for someone who can confirm that, or give a better/definite answer...
sure.. why not... I guess in order to delete the files I need folder permission but could copy any how.
Thank you very much for all your support I can confirm now that it was the permission issue. I gave myself full rights and now its working.,..

Many Thanks all...
