Storage Migration Service - Access Denied

New Contributor

have ran the storage migraion service a number of times and all had been okay, until recently when on three shares i now get the error "Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))" this has only started coming up. i've got full permissions on the share and on files, and i've upgraded the admin center to the latest version...does anyone have any thoughts?


thanks :)

Running into the same problem.  Did you find a fix for it?

as it goes yes! 

the server i was migrating to was also the server i was running the storage migration service on. it was an update that broke it if i recall...once i moved to another server it all worked fine...had to start from scratch though! :unamused:
