Where are you trying to copy the files from in your hard drive?
You should be able to copy anything in your user account.
If that's not so repair permissions on your Home folder. Just Repairing permissions in Disk Utility doesn't touch your Home folder.
Boot up holding command-r keys into your Recovery Volume.
From the menu bar choose Utilities then select Terminal.
At the prompt type resetpassword
The Password reset utility will launch (do not reset password)
Instead, click your Mac hard drive.
Then from the drop-down select the user account you want to repair. At the bottom of the window, you’ll see an area labeled ‘Reset Home Directory Permissions and ACLs’. Click the Reset button there.
The process takes a couple of minutes. When it’s done, quit the programs you’ve opened and restart your Mac.

Well, macjack, restting home dir permissions and ACL worked for me, except I keep having to do it over again. I've done it 4 times in 6 days. Apparently something is causing this glitch, but I don't have the faintest idea what could be. Thoughts?

I'm having this same issue as well.
Does your Safari keep freezing up sometime too?
I have the exact thing, 15" Retina with 10.8.2 on it.

Yes, sometimes Safari freezes too. I'm not sure it's related though. Here is some more information:
I have been having problems with external hard disks not ejecting. Even Force Ejecting doesn't work. The Force Eject sequence ends with the alert box saying the disk has been ejected, but it never actually ejects (turns gray but instantly remounts as soon as the last alert is dismissed). One hd got corrupted from too many failed Force Ejects followed by unpluggings, so I transferred its contents to another freshly formatted drive. I was not able to do this on my MBPr however, since the "Operation not permitted" issue prevented it, so I moved to another Mac and did it. Now the new hd won't eject either. Steps taken:
1. Put it in Spotlight's Privacy pane to prevent scanning
2. Quit all apps
3. Relaunched Finder
4. Tried ejecting/unmounting both volume and device from within Disk Utility
Still no joy. I am wondering if this is related to the permissions problem...

Oh ya, that's another issue I've been having too. I try to eject the USB or External Drive and it won't eject even when I do a force eject. I end up just getting fed up and physically taking it out. Sound exactly the same issue. Hopefully it's just an OS update issue that they'll fix soon.
