I'm trying to copy my hard drive over my WiFi network from my current computer running XP to my new Windows 8, however certain files, especially my Sony Vegas project files refuse to go over.

EDIT: I access another computer on my network that's running Windows 7 and was able to copy a Sony Vegas Project file fine. So it seems to be an issue with XP

You should be able to copy any folders over on your Network apart from Windows and Program Files I can if you set access to that folder in its properties and add a Guest user that can Read and Write.
