Access denied to paths I have full rights on

Access denied to paths I have full rights on

I used to have no problem running the following command:
DATE /T > x:\WEB\CASE1\LOG
TIME /T >>X:\WEB\CASE1\LOG
Then all I did is to move the LOG directory right into the WEB subdirectory,
and now, when I run DATE /T > x:\WEB\LOG, or TIME /T >>X:\WEB\LOG...I keep getting "access is denied".
This is total surprise for me, because:
(1)I have on X:\WEB\CASE1\LOG, the exact same full read/write/full control permissions I have
on X:\WEB\LOG.

-The server that hosts the X:\ path is a windows 2003 sp1 server running in an Active Directory environment.
I am part of the Administrators group on that server
-The client computers I am running both commands from are WinXP SP3 computers that I have local Admin rights on.
And of course, X:\ is a valid mapped drive (just pointing to the server. X:\ = \\servername\path).
And YES, I can create/delete files/directories on that x:\WEB\LOG path on which the 2 above commands fail with
the "access is denied" error.

I am running out of solutions. Any idea what could this be?
Thaks for your help

Just a guess: Does the system need rwx permissions to the path to make it work?

Thanjs Guapo for the suggestion, but I have full Admin rights over it.

what are the attributes of the file?
can you open, edit and save the file manually?

sonylloyd, you missed my point. In some cases the "system" has to be added as if it were a user, with rwx permissions.
