    I've looked and looked and haven't fixed this. I am trying to copy MY files from MY FOLDER to MY FOLDER. Something I have been able to do for a weeks now it says I need Administer Permission so I give it then I get Destination Folder Access Denied. I edit permissions to give Full Control and still! I don't know wtf is wrong with this POS OS. I have turned off User Account Control which stopped asking me to give permission but still give an Destination Folder Access Denied.

    The folder keep making itself Read Only. What is that all about?

    I'm on Windows Vista Home Premium

    Would help if you would tell us the full pathname of the source folder and the destination folder. Saying something like "MY FOLDER" tells us nothing useful.

    I'm not trying to put files in System32 or Program Files. Hell I can do that but move my files to a folder that I made. Nope. Not today atleast.

    Well apparently the problem solved itself. I literally did nothing. I dunno why it's working now and wasn't then but it was a REAL pain in my ***!
