I have two computers on our local network both running Windows XP. My main computer has local network sharing setup for
I have a folder with two 1GB .zip files, one of which I've had for a while, and one of which is new -- let's call them
NEW.zip. Using Windows Explorer drag & drop, I'm trying to copy the new file
NEW.zip from my main computer to my lab computer. But it won't work; I get an error message:
Cannot copy NEW.zip: Access is denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.
which is really odd, because I don't get that error message when I try to copy
OLD.zip; it works fine. (And there's 38GB free on my lab computer hard drive, so I'm not running out of space.)
I've tried restarting my main computer, and it still has the problem.
What could be causing this, and how can I fix it?
