Dear gurus,

I am having a computer windows xp problem. I am trying to copy files/file from one hdd to another hdd but it doesn't work. it reports :
error moving file
cannot move 3213:access is denied
make sure disk is not full or write protected and that file is not currently in use
i do not have anyidea what is going on. the file is not in use, and not open at all.
I tried even a file such as txt file. it has the same error. Some of the files move whilst some of it doens't,
i just installed bit defender this problem started arising.

Please help me!!!

Thanks,
AmazingTrans :)

I've actually tried it but it doesn't work . Currently, my user is an Admin.
any other ideas?

As I know, I can still save files into the harddrives. but I just cannot copy from one hard drive to another. anybody?
