How to obtain sufficient privileges to complete operation

Advertisement

I'm not sure this is the correct forum in which to post my question; if not, please direct me to the correct one or preferably, provide me with a solution to my problem/question. Thanks.
As I attempt to copy/move files in Finder, many are completed but for others a message appears "The operation cannot be completed because you do not have sufficient privileges for some of the items." All of the "items" are ones that I have created! What determines the sufficient privileges and how do I obtain them?
Thanks for your help.

I am moving/copying docs and jpgs folders/files to Documents and Pictures through the Finder window.
Most of the time I am simply moving an entire folder of either documents or jpgs. When the message comes up, I check the Finder window to see if a folder for either has been created and it is usually there, then I go back to the original location and highlight all of the items in the folder and move them to their folder through the Finder window; when I do this, the copying begins and then abruptly stops with the message appearing that the operation could not completed because I didn't have sufficient privileges. Checking that folder I find no items copied in it.
Many files and folders have been transfered this way but several times the above message appears. I go on to other folders and files and complete those.
I would like to be able to transfer these also with which I have had the message to appear.
Thanks for your reply and hope you can help - hope this information is what you need.
