Hi -
The first questions are, are you logged in as administrator ? and next are the more than one partition on the computer ?
If you are trying to do this from a Non Admin account this could be a reason.

Select the file, right-click, Properties, Security, locate your group/user name (current user account), take a look at the Permissions.

You will need to change these permissions to be able to copy/paste the file.

Alternatively, as suggested above, log in as the Administrator.
