The file's current owner should make sure that the new owner has write permission on the directory where the file is and read permission on the file itself:
ls -ld . afiledrwxr-xr-x 2 jerry 512 Aug 10 12:20 . -rw-r--r-- 1 jerry 1934 Aug 10 09:34 afile jerry%
chmod go+w .
The new owner (logged in as herself) should rename the file, make a copy, and delete the original file. If the new owner is there at the same time,is probably the fastest way to change accounts:
