  • System Error. Code: 5

    During a synchronization I get files with this message:
    Error copying _ _ _ _ (filename): System Error. Code:5. Access is denied.
    I looked through the forums for an answer to this but did not find anyone else with the same error code.
    Thanks for any help.

    This typically means file permissions or share permissons are preventing the file operation.

    The first thing to try is to perform the same action using Windows Explorer. If it fails in Explorer, it is likely a problem with permissions.

    Make sure your user account has read access to the source side of the synchronization and read/write access to the target side. For a good tutorial on setting permissions and file sharing, see: http://www.practicallynetworked.com/...p_filesharing/

      Chris,

      That's exactly what the problem was. There were files that the System account and the Administrator account did not have rights to. As soon as I corrected this problem the program ran without any errors.
      Is there a listing somewhere of the error codes?
      Thanks for your help.
