I get a veritey of failure from "ACCESS DENIED" to "Cannot move *.* Access is denied Make sure the disk is not full and that the file is not currently in use" if i copy and paste it usialy works... but this is a frustrateing and time consumeing espesialy on larger files.

Give these a good read, It is most likely an issue with the permissions of the folder you are trying to move the files from.
