“Access Denied” on STSADM – export command

If you ever get an "Access Denied" error on the "default.aspx" file when trying to export a SharePoint site (MOSS 2007) with STSADM –export command, open the site in SharePoint designer, check the "default.aspx" file out, then check in, then try the export again.

Works like charm each time, it is that I forget every time what I have done the last time that it works (since I use it once a year). Well, now I wrote it down.
