Thanks for the tip. I ran cacls on the directory and got the following (with my translation from Swedish Windows ;-)): BUILTIN\Administrators:(OI)(CI)FNT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM:(OI)(CI)Fmachine\me:FCREATOR OWNER:(OI)(CI)(IO)F It looks like SYSTEM has full access to me. Does it look ok to you? /Tomas Från: condor-users-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:condor-users-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxx] För John (TJ) KnoellerSkickat: den 15 augusti 2011 17:02Till: condor-users@xxxxxxxxxxxÄmne: Re: [Condor-users] transfer_input_files do not copy directories on Windows XP try running the CACLS tool to get the ACL's on the directory.  does the SYSTEM process have read and traverse access?you should see something like this:     > cacls foo     c:\path\to\foo NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM:(OI)(CI)(ID)F                                BUILTIN\Administrators:(OI)(CI)(ID)F                                machine\you:(OI)(CI)(ID)F-tjOn 8/15/2011 5:48 AM, Tomas Lidén wrote: I tried upgrading to 7.6.2 but still get the same problem../T  On our system we can use transfer_input_files to copy files but if we specify a directory we get ERROR: Can't open ".."  with flags 00 (Permission denied) It does not matter whether we specify a trailing slash or not. Any help in resolving this would be much appreciated! We’re running $CondorVersion: 7.6.0 Apr 16 2011 BuildID: 327460$$CondorPlatform: x86_winnt_5.1$    _______________________________________________Condor-users mailing listTo unsubscribe, send a message to condor-users-request@xxxxxxxxxxx with asubject: UnsubscribeYou can also unsubscribe by visitinghttps://lists.cs.wisc.edu/mailman/listinfo/condor-users The archives can be found at:https://lists.cs.wisc.edu/archive/condor-users/
