Windows cannot copy file C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\CmdletSqmData3700_100.sqm to location C:\Users\TEMP\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\CmdletSqmData3700_100.sqm. This error may be caused by network problems or insufficient security rights.

DETAIL - Access is denied.


change the security permissions on the file to inherit and remove the pre-existing permissions.


  1. Thank you! It's work, I just added full permissions on this file for group "Domain Users"

  2. This was a big help - thank you!

  3. You're a genius. Had the same problem with the same folder but different .sqm file. Just had to make the change to inherit permissions.


  4. Awesome! I was trying to set up a new domain user remotely when I ran into this problem, different file of course, but it worked like a charm. I spent hours looking at other fixes that got me nowhere. Thanks for this!!!
