Trying to backup files to external USB HD and get an error "The operation can't be completed because you don't have permission to access ARDAgent". Not even trying to access the ARDAgent. I don't use ARD.

Were you copying system files?

No, not copying system files, just some photos.

"The operation can't be completed because you don't have permission..." during a copy is a copy-error. The ARD agent should reside in your /System/Library/Core Services folder.

Maybe you dragged your selection outline a bit too far and inadvertently selected the /System folder.
