Moving between two unrestricted spaces -> "Move failed." Edited

I have two spaces. They do not have restrictions. One is the user's personal space.

I regularly create and edit in both spaces, but when I try to move a page from one space to another, I get:

Move failed. You are not permitted to move a page to this location.

This is mostly a single-user instance, even historically there were not many permission settings if at all.

I've googled and searched the community. Any ideas?


Thanks in advance.

Hi Ben,

Thank you for raising this. Is the personal space your own personal space, or does it belong to another user? 

Would you be able to show us what the space permissions  look like for each of those spaces?

Note that if you are not the Confluence site admin, you may need to end up raising this request with them, since they have access to certain administration sections that we will need to have a look at if this issue is persisting. Can you confirm? The information I am able to find regarding your question states that you may not be the site admin for this account.

Thank you!
