I am having trouble with several files on a Leopard server. 


When I attempt to copy a directory (from a Windows XP Pro machine) I get the following message:


Cannot copy xxx: Cannot read from the source file or disk


In searching on the support commmunity site, I find that this has happened to others.  Some people claim it is a period at the end of the file name, that is not the case here.  Others say it has something to do with extended file permissions, also not true.



Please help?
