I have to rename and paste the file in windows/system32/config but while i go for paste or renaming a file it shows error

the ubuntu shows error on only pasting or renaming of file in config folder while in all other folder in windows folder it is possible to paste or rename any file

but problem occurs only in config folder

when i go to rename the file it shows error as
Sorry, could not rename "system" to "system.old": Error renaming file: Input/output error

while pasting a file it shows error as
There was an error copying the file into /media/Windows/WINDOWS/system32/config.
