I am trying to copy a customers favorites folder and the outlook.pst file from a laptop hard drive to my jump drive on my Vista system. This should take two seconds! Nope!

Vista always says you do not have permission to copy this file.
Even when I have granted permission and while using the real administrator accout with UAC turned off.
I tried it on my XP system and it does the same thing

This is not only annoying, it wastes an incredible ammount of time!!
Is there a way to completely disable permissions so that I can simply copy a file and a folder?
I have tried solutions found on the net to no avail

Will I run into the same nonsense when I attempt to copy these items back onto her new laptop?
In the beginning there was the command line.

Is outlook currently opened when performing this?

Have you tried the import/export function of Outlook via File Menu options.

Got it sorted. Had to attach her hard drive to my system and take ownership of it in XP safe mode as admin
That permission stuff really is a pain!
Microsoft is making our work more difficult with it and not easier

Thanks a lot!
