many files get "error 5: Access is denied"

I have started getting a lot of errors when I sync my thumbdrive to the harddrive. I did this for quite a while with no errors. The errors are mostly in this fomat:
"Failed to Copy File to (error 5: Access Denied)"
And a few other failures that don't involve Toucan.tmp but seem related.
The files aren't readonly, and they're not OS files. They're just files created or updated by a variety of applications (word, excel, some modeling tools, etc).
I'm trying to do a Sync Equalise with "retain timestamps" and "retain attributes" turned on.
It hasn't always done this, but it's consistent across two different computers, syncing different files using a different syn Job, in the last few weeks.
I just upgraded from Toucan version 2.1.0 to 2.2.1, with no difference.
Neither path is in the Programs or Windows directory.
I am using it on one Windows XP machine and on a separate Windows 7 machine, with the same results.
