I'm using Windows 7 and today when I try to move a file to my C-drive/Users/Public Folder so another computer on my home network can access it, I get a message that states " you need permission to perform this action".
The thing is I was doing this same thing up until yesterday with no problem. I have not changed any settings. What could have changed this ?

when I use the other computer on my home network I can still access the Public Folder on the Windows 7 computer which has all the files in it that I was able to add a few days ago... It's just that now I am not able to put any new files from Windows 7 computer into the Windows 7 Public Folder on the C drive like I was able to do a few days ago. I don't understand why all of a sudden I need permission to move my own files on my own computer to a different folder on the same compuer? I have not changed any setting,..it doesn't make sense ???

Does this happen when you move any file from anywhere? Or just specific places? Try from your desktop, root of C, etc.

It happens when I try to move the file to the "Public File" on my "Drive C" for home network sharing.
I had been doing it before with no problem. I had set up my home net work sharing and wasn't having any problems until yesterday.

I'm asking where you're moving it from. Where is the original location of the file you are moving?

I don't have a complete answer for you, but I started having this issue at work. I discovered that if a file is read-only, I get this problem when I try to move it. To work around it, I remove the read-only attribute, then move the file, then restore the read-only attribute.

original location...moving it from anywhere.... such as Folder on my Desk Top or a files in my Pictures Folder etc.
I just can not find a way to get files in that Public Folder for file sharing in my home network anymore... (like I used to do a few days ago) sigh.....

@ oddstray
The attributes are not set for read-only.
