Finish action in Export fails

Apr 27, 2012 at 1:52 PM


I am exporting SP 2007 content data from one of our production servers using SP Content Deployment Wizard. I gave all the necessary information like Export URL, Export Folder, File Name, other required dropdown values. 

When I click on "Finish" in the final step of the Export Wizrd, I am getting the following error.

[4/27/2012 5:51:08 AM]: Start Time: 4/27/2012 5:51:08 AM.

I have never faced this situation before and it didn't happen in TEST and STAGE. We were able to successfully export and import data.

I am unable to find out, why it is looking for write access to the Z:\Temp \{Guid} folder.

Please suggest how to fix this and continue with exporting the data.
