Are you using Vista?

Do you have admin rights?

Can you actually *create* the destination directory?

A street dance. The two partners approach from opposite directions and
try politely to get out of each other's way. They step to the left,
step to the right, apologise, step to the left again, apologise again,
bump into each other and repeat as often as unnecessary.
