Problems moving attachments in confluence


I have a number of pages set up under a parent page in Confluence. I am pretty sure I have full access rights on all pages, and I use them all to upload and store attachments. I have previously successfully moved attachments between these pages.

Since Friday I have been attempting to move an attachment from one of these pages to another (I don't think I have moved an attachment to the target page previously). I keep getting the error message that I can't move the attachment to a page that doesn't exist.I've type/pasted the name numerous tmes, it definitely exists!

I tried moving the attachment to a target page I used previously - just to see - and that worked but it's not stuck there. I can't move it back or to another page...

Any suggestions as to what might be going wrong would be great.

I posted in error before, forgot what happened before christmas, sorry! I removed the colons (:) from my page names and was once again able to move documents between them.

Thanks again to those who offered help.
