How to manage NTFS remote copy

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -


My name is Sara Carter.  I am having problems with my computer. Every time I tried to copy my files into our server it failed and it says file specified error. Does this error is related to the NTFS forward and backward compatibility. We just upgrade from Windows NT to Windows Vista.

Please help me.

This can be caused by the User not having Permission to read or write in the specific drive or folder. To solve this, log in on your computer as an Administrator, this is because as an Administrator you will have full access, then try to copy the files that received an error again, if that works change the security settings for all the other Users that you need to have Permission to make changes on the computer.

Or you can just delete the other User profiles and leave Administrator as the only User available, to do this go to Control Panel > User Accounts > Add or remove user accounts.

How to manage NTFS remote copy


If you need to copy files from your workstation to the server, check and verify that the files on the server is not open on other computers or no users are using them. When copying files, it involves modifying the target files and replacing them with the source files.

If the files you need to copy don’t exist in the target path, it will simply copy the files to the target location. If the files are open and being used on other workstations, close them first then try copying again. This should fix the problem. If this doesn’t help, check if the files are read-only.

You won’t be able to copy files if their attribute is set to read-only. To check the files’ attribute, navigate to the target files’ location in the server then right-click one file and select “Properties.” In the properties window, in “General” tab at the bottom in “Attributes” section, verify that “Read-only” is not checked. If it is checked, uncheck it then click “OK.”

Do this in every file in the target location.
