I was transferrng back up files from my G5 to my new iMac using a shared folder over the network. It wasn't working well, so I bought a thumb drive thinking to move and copy them over via the drive. The shared folder won't allow me to move the files anywhere except to the trash. So I moved all the files to the trash thinking I could move them out of the trash. I set all the permissions to read and write and they still won't move. I can't figure out why these files are locked as each is clicked to share and have permissions. Any suggestions?

G5 Desktop, Mac OS X (10.4.5), Also own G5 & Powerbook
