Copying a database from SQL Server 2000 to SQL Server 2005

I am using the Copy Database Wizard to copy a database from SQL Server 2000 to SQL Server 2005. I gave it the data file path on the source server (ex. SOURCEDBC$Program FilesMicrosoft SQL ServerMSSQLData), but it returns an error when I attempt to execute the package ("Access to the path 'SOURCEDBC$Program FilesMicrosoft SQL ServerMSSQLDatactyis_before_migrate_data.mdf' is denied.”). Do you have any suggestions on how to go ahead?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Where are you putting in the path to the source database? If you are connecting to a SQL Server instance you shouldn’t need to put in a source path, only the source SQL Server, and the database name. Same goes for the destination. If the destination doesn’t exist it will ask you for a path, but that will be a path local to the destination server, not a UNC path.
