Say I wanted to copy a file over the network over the same file name on say machine 2, i.e. test.txt from machine 1, and it tells me access denied. Won't the file I just tried to copy over itself be 0 bytes in size on machine 2?

What are the read write permisions on the file?

Did you start as a user or try to finish as a user with no rights?

It the file opened or being used on the write to computer?

Flaky network connection? Wireless can cause this at times.

DRM protected file?

Another thought on the in use, if one of the systems believe that the file is still being writtin to it may "believe" that it is still in use.

Yes, sometimes it does do that "in use" thing.... although, if it's notepad you are using, that's probably not the case... If this is all about some big project you are working on with others, you might check out open source solutions. I don't know which is best solution, but do know there are some open source solutions that allow you to check in and check out files and upload new versions, etc. and it tracks all that stuff and who's using what file when and stuff. People working on projects where multiple people have access to various things all the time... cvs is what I think it's called Concurrent Versions System - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
