    I'm really stuck on this one...

    I have XP SP2 on my old laptop.

    I have Vista Home Premium on my new laptop

    From my new Vista laptop I'm trying to copy data files from my XP

    1. I see the XP laptop on my local workgroup just fine.

    2. I can browse files on the XP laptop from my Vista laptop

    3. When trying to copy whole folders from the XP laptop, it works just
    fine unless...

    4. There's an .mdb file, a .zip file or a .pdf file.

    When the copy process encounters any of those files, I get the
    following error box:

    "Destination Folder Access Denied"

    ...and within the box the message is:

    "You need permission to perform this action"

    I'm logged in as an administrator on the both laptops.


    Thanks for any perspectives,

    Rick Gates
