Can't copy manila files anymore
 
Hi guys,

I'm using a Diamond with MightyRom4. I need to replace a couple manila files in the Windows folder on the phone. I've done this easily in the past but for some reason I can't replace the files anymore. I've tried this a few different ways:

1. On the phone itself. I turned off Touchflo completely and tried to copy those manila files to the Windows folder. This gives me a error message saying they can't be copied, access is denied since they may be locked etc.

2. Using Activesync (over bluetooth) from my computer. Still not allowed permission.

3. Using Total Commander over activesync. Again, no permission granted to copy.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

EDIT: The only thing I can think of is that I'm now using Vista whereas when I used to move these files before i was using XP. Could that have anything to do with it?

I use Vista and it works for me, so I dont think it is that.

Only thing I can think of is, did you remove the "hidden", "read only" and "system" attributes with Total Commander before trying to over write the files?

Thanks for your reply. yeah I removed the Read-Only attributes from those files before trying this, but it doesn't seem to work. Removing those attributes doesn't "stick". It'll look like it's unchecked but next time I look at it, it's checked again so it basically stays Read-Only.

I'm unsure of what else to try at this point..

Well guess what? It was Vista. Went back to my old XP machine and used ActiveSync and it worked just fine. Of course now the files i replaced weren't all good so i have other issues to deal with, but that's another matter.

Does anyone have any insight into why Vista won't let me delete/overwrite these protected manila files while XP does? Thanks.

UAC or just create a shortcut to File Explorer or Windows Explorer on the Desktop and right click Run as Administrator.

I have UAC turned off and I'm logged in as an Administrator already. Even so, I ran Windows Explorer as Administrator explicitly and still ran in to the same issue. I appreciate the thought though!
