Maven Shading Error: Access is Denied

Now, I have already seen this question, however it doesn’t appear anything is using my target folder.

What’s going on, is when I compile it fails and shows me this error:

[ERROR] Failed to execute goal org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-shade-plugin:2.3:shade (default) on project FooProject: Error creating shaded jar: Failed to analyze class dependencies: C:\Users\paul_000\Documents\FooCore\target\classes (Access is denied) -> [Help 1]

I’m not quite sure exactly why this happens, as it doesn’t happen on my normal computer.

EDIT: I forgot to mention, the jar I am shading does not exist on a repository. I just compile it locally (clean install).
As well, here’s what I use to shade:

<plugin>
<groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
<artifactId>maven-shade-plugin</artifactId>
<version>2.3</version>
<configuration>
</configuration>
<executions>
<execution>
<phase>package</phase>
<goals>
<goal>shade</goal>
</goals>
<configuration>
<minimizeJar>true</minimizeJar>
</configuration>
</execution>
</executions>
</plugin>
