Moving dropbox to open internal drive

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I tried to move dropbox folder as per instructions, to internal empty drive (formatted).  On PC, Win 10 64 bit. Only Chrome with Dropbox help instructions on how to do this was open.  Nothing else running or open on PC including windows explorer.  Move failed, said either some files were open or some files couldn't be moved.  No clue why, no way to diagnose, no file list or anything to further explain.  Am stuck. No further help on forum either.  I must move this folder, am installing an SSD soon to replace this bootable HD where Dropbox folder resides.

My bad.  The permissions on the drive were messed up. Fixed that, the move is in progress.  SUCCESS!!!
