    I'm a domain administrator and I'm setting up my first Vista
    workstation. I'm trying to copy a users favorites and my documents to
    the new pc. I'm logging in as domain admin into the vista machine and
    I have browsed to the users pc by \\pcname\c$ and I'm trying to copy
    the files to a local folder I created called Temp. When I paste it
    will copy some files but some ".jpg" files and some ".url" files will
    come back with the error "Destination folder : you need permission to
    perform this action" Any ideas, I've tried disabling UAC and took
    ownership of the folder I created I don't see how the destination
    folder could care what is being put in it????

    I've tried everything. I can see/open the files on the remote 2000
    machine but if I try and copy any file to the vista machine(any
    location) says access denied. I've even created a new folder gave
    myself full rights and ownership and changed the permissions on a
    remote file to same and still cannot copy.

    I have the same problem. I read somewhere that an update could solv
    that problem. I also read that you could solve this issue by "moving
    the folder instead of "copying" it. I haven't tried either yet
