The system onyl see's numeric user and group ids,

User Identification # (UID) 0 == only the kernel is more powerful they thou, and that usually comes into play when doing things in /dev/ that can't be done without coding it.


What program are you using to save the file

What program (if any) are you using to remove the old file

How and where does the error appear


etc.


Because generally you don't get such errors ^_^ and remember not everyone uses the same programs.


I for one would be copying the file to a save location with cp and then mv'ing the new one into place as root from my users home directories Pictures folder.
