Lightroom: Could not copy a file to the requested location. (1143)

When importing in Lightroom 3.4 I get the following error: 'Could not copy a file to the requested location. (1143)'. Upgraded to 3.4 just prior to this. Problem remains even after creating new catalog. There is enough HDD space... any ideas? Thanks.

Check both the destination location and also the 'second copy' location - it could be that the second copy location is set to a folder that no longer exists.

Dear Victoria,
that seems to be the problem - excellent tip! Sorted (even though I don't know how that happened...).
