Unable to place file on the IFS drive

I have a vendor who is providing an update via download from their website. The instructions are to save the zip-file to a PC, then un-zip the contents to the IFS drive. When I specify the IFS drive (in the un-zip process) and hit enter, the message; Error, access is denied followed by, Cannot create [name of file]. If I un-zip the file on the PC and try to move the resulting file to the IFS drive, I get the following error; can not copy [name of file] access is denied the source file may be in use. I get the same message if I try to copy and paste a file. I believe the IFS drive is defined properly, yet this problem seems like an authority or permissions type problem. Any suggestions on what to check or correct? Thanks, Mike

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

it seems your profile has no authority to add a file. Try to save a notepad file in the ifs : you would have the same message
an other way is to create a file in the ifs with WRKLNK or CPYTOSTMF to check your authority.

Have you an antivirus or a firewall (in the 400 or between the 400 & the PC)? it can be an other source of control.
