    Can't move Music folder to another drive


    I'm trying to move all of my documents to a new hard drive and I successfully did it with all of them except for the "Music" folder; each time I try to move it to a new location I get this error message:

    How is your permissions? Does your user account have enough rights to write data to your intended destination location?

    Yes, I have admin rights, I have every permission except for "Special permissions", which I don't know if that's necessary nor how to enable it.

    Maybe try copying the music to a different location on the present hard drive and then copy to the new hard drive. I have had this problem with other versions of windows and that is how I got around it.

    I tried it and I still get the message "The copy function cannot be used".
