Preferred Solution: remove file delete permission while keeping rename permission

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I am not sure why you want to do this; however, this tutorial will show you how to take ownership of a system file and also show you how to return the ownership to the trusted installer. Just be careful what you do here:

I am the only user on a new PC. My account name is Adele. THe network path for the account is Adele - PC\users\Adele. In the security listings there is a listing for Adele (Adele-PC\Adele). I have made that listing the owner of the file and all its parent folders and have given it full control of all. When I try to delete the file I get a msg that permission is denied because I need permission from Adele-PC\Adele. I've tried an retried always with the same result. What can I do?

Also there's a folder called "default" in the listing of users. Is that supposed to be there?

Answer:Permission denied to delete a file I own

Add "TakeOwn" to your context menu in new installation. Download the .reg file and permit registry merge to occur -

http://sysnative.com/0x8/takeown_ica...ows7_Vista.reg

RIGHT-click on the file in question, select "Take Ownership"

c:\users\default - contains the default folders used to create new user accounts. Do not delete it.

I'm trying to get rid of the Windows 10 upgrade nag. I removed the offending Windows update but I'm still getting the nag. Another website suggested renaming Windows\System32\GWX\GWXUX.exe. I changed ownership of System32 and subdirectories from Trusted Installer to Administrators. I'm logged in as administrator but I still get a screen saying "You require permission from Administrators to make changes to this file." when I try to rename it.

Why do I get this message? How can I rename the file?

Often, I will get an error like this when trying to uninstall a program: http://puu.sh/uaCQ

When I attempt to manually delete such a file, Windows will tell me I "need permission from an administrator," even though I'm logged in as the administrator (net user administrator).

The only way to delete said files is to shift+delete, and wait around five minutes real-time for the file to finally delete. If I attempt to right-click --> properties on the file during the timeframe, I'll get a properties window that tells me the filesize is whatever the filesize is, but that the "Size on disk" is ridiculously small, like a few 100 bytes.

This doesn't just happen upon uninstall; often, I can't overwrite files or delete them even when no other program is using them. This occurs across all drives, not just my root SSD drive.

I'm running Windows 7 x64. Any ideas?

I have Windows Vista service pack 2, recently updated, it's working fine.

When the new Google Reader layout arrived I disliked it and decided to download another RSS reader, Omea. During download it created a folder in Program Files as usual, but Omea didn't work so I tried to uninstall it. While the software shows up in the add/remove programs list, when I try to uninstall it doesn't recognize Omea Reader as even being on the system, saying it's already been removed. I manually removed the software but it has left one file behind I cannot delete because I need "permission." The file is IexploreOmeaW.dll

I already have User Account Control off.

I've tried removing the file from the account I used to download the software as well as from the other account I have on Vista. Neither worked.

I made the file unhidden and changed permissions on it in Properties. That still didn't work.

The path is Program Files -> JetBrains -> Omea Reader -> IexploreOmeaW.dll

What can I do to remove this? Thanks!

I want to rename c:\windows\system 32\catroot2 .

Because I am having problems with obtaining the updates on a Vista Home Premium SP 0 computer.

On my computer, Vista Ultimate, SP0, I tried to rename it, logged on as "XX", member of Administrators group.

UAC is off.

I activated THE "Administrator" account & established a password.

Still, I am unable to change the file name. I checked the properties of "catroot2"

I'm running Windows Vista x64 SP1 on my HP CQ60-210US Laptop, and I can't seem to be able to rename a folder no matter what I do. I've enabled the hidden Administrator account, tried to set security and owners, and yet, all I ever get is access denied. I just want to rename a fucking folder, and I'm pissed Vista is giving me issues. I would use XP x64, but HP doesn't have drivers for XP. I'm trying to create and rename folders in Program Files (x86), and I've had no luck. Any programs out there to hack these features out of Vista and give me TRUE FULL CONTROL?

Is Windows 7 this annoying? What do I do? I've spent the last 4 hours searching for a solution.

Please help me; I'm frustrated. I'm an advanced user, and I can't even create a damn folder in Vista. Ugh.... I hate this.
 

Answer:Vista Permission Issues - Can't rename folder in Program Files x86

Have looked at the other postings about Windows 7 and "You need permission" - this one seems new. I have a laptop and a desktop both running Windows 7, both part of HOMEGROUP.

The desktop has two hard drives (C and D), both shared with full access to EVERYONE.
I can see both but can only update the D drive on the desktop from the laptop. When I try any update (new folder, copy a new file in, etc.) to the C drive, I get the "You need permission" error.

Have tried turning off sharing then turning back on for the C drive and have compared the sharing between C and D - they appear identical. Snipit of C drive permission attached. Any thoughts or ideas on what else to try would be appreciated.

Answer:You need permission - happening on networked drive that has permission

Rather than sharing form the root of the C: drive you should be sharing from the C:>Users folder instead. This is the default setting for Windows and there are many good reasons for this.

For networked drives that were created under a different User name you would also need to allow for sharing using the "Security" tab of the C: drive. The link below shows you how.

You can also set this drive share up at the C:>Users location if desired.

Hi,
I'm new to Windows 7.

I'm still trying to master the file permissions.. I need some help and I'd appreciate it if someone could help me out.

I have a folder with mp3s (created with my old Windows XP system). I've included this mp3s folder in the "my music" library and then I inspected the folder and took ownership of it together with everything it contains (following instructions I found on the Net).

Nevertheless, when I'm trying to delete or move a file I get the message that I need to provide administrator permission! But I thought I am both administrator and owner...

Also, when listen to the songs with WinAmp, it seems I cannon save any song data. I get: Cannot save metadata: Error opening file.

I suppose, it's an aspect of the very same problem.

What am I missing?

thanx.

Answer:I need admin permission to delete/move file (but I'm both admin/owner)

Take a look on the properties of the folder see if you have an unblock button . If you do click on it .

Ok this is really ridiculous. I have looked online for about 2 hours and there isn't a single method that worked. Why is the simplest thing on earth like deleting a folder has to be the hardest one? Why can't I, as a administrator delete that file? You do not own permission to delete this file, what the hell, who does then? I need to delete some files from AVG to be able to reinstall it and it won't let me. As of now I don't have any protection and I need to fix it ASAP. I won't go into details on how much XP was 130981289437FG289472389 better than vista, but meh. So there is 2 errors when I try to delete AVG 2012 from a folder and another AVG from another folder. The first one says : The action can't be completed because this folder is open in another program. Close the folder and try again. Nothing is opened? The second one asks for my permission as i've said above. Thanks for the help, and sorry about the language, but it is really stupid that administrators can't delete any files by default..

Answer:Need permission from myself to delete files

I think I have worked out what is causing this strange behaviour.
It seems to be caused by Symantec Endpoint Protection which is the antivirus software installed on the computers. If I disable it I am able to to delete files from that directory. I was also unable to even move files into the directory before disabling the
antivirus sometimes or other times the files would start to move/copy and then just hang and I had to restart the computer as canceling the file copy would crash explorer and it would then refuse to load again.
 
This software caused issues on all the servers as well with similar problems and had to be removed (i.e. logins with roaming profiles taking hours).
It is the latest version and is labeled as compatible with Windows 7 and 2008 R2 but it clearly isn't!

I'm the person I'm supposed to be asking for permission? I created a folder on the desktop when I was in the agonizing throes of trying to set up Windows 7. I now want to delete the folder. The problem is that there are files in it that I'm told cannot be deleted without getting permission from myself. This is very frustrating, as I don't know where to go to grant myself this permission. I've looked at Help and Support, which goes through the process of telling me what permissions ARE, but not how I can grant one to myself.

I have tried booting up in safe mode. That didn't work. I tried going to the command prompt as an administrator. No dice. I don't know what else to do. The folder only has 3 mb in it now, but its annoying as all get out not to be able to give myself permission to get rid of something that I created.

Take ownership of the file and if necessary, assign your user account the appropriate permissions. Right click the file, go to properties, then Security tab. Click Advanced button, then switch to ownership tab. Should be straight forward from there onwards.

When I try to delete some folders it asks me to give administrator permission to delete it so I do then it tells me I require permission from MSI/BBass (myself) to make changes to this folder. This has happened for multiple folders in my steam folder. I've tried giving myself permission which did nothing but I have been able to delete the folders by going in and deleting everything inside the folder then deleting the folder itself. But this problem has happened to a lot of my games and each game folder has hundreds and even thousands of folders for some games so it's not possible for me to manually delete everything.

Windows 10 takes away the ability of the Administrator to make changes to the OS partition without giving yourself further permission. Also, if you are running in administrator mode to avoid this, you can't even open any UWP apps.

Answer:User permission to delete files

10 more replies
Relevance 81.18%

My OS is windows 7 I use a Freecom 500gb external drive and find that I am requested to seek permission from the administrator (myself I think) to delete some files that have many digit numbers and are empty.I find I cannot delete them there are about a dozen of them
 

Answer:Permission to delete files or folders

Usually this is because the files are "in use". They cannot be removed while they are being accessed. Sometimes, what that is might be hard to find, but there are many programs that run in the background to monitor images, some installed along with printers.

You can use these to remove the files on next boot:

Unlocker
Emco Move On Boot
UnlockIt
FreeFile

Or, you can try to find out what process is locking the files:

OpenedFilesView

But be careful about deleting files if you do not know what they are.

Can't delete/change or add permissions or install an older driver over it

Any ideas? Ta

Answer:Can't Delete driver needs permission from TrustedInstaller

How did you uninstall the drivers ? Just delete it ? Normally, you'd uninstall the driver from Device Manager.
Try: DriverStore Explorer [RAPR] - Home . It's a single execuatble file, tick on the driver you want to delete, tick on "Force Deletion" -> Delete package

Have got permission over Trustedinstaller but still geting stopped by being told I require administrator permission I have checked I do have full permission but it does not help,I am trying to delete a second copy of win7, it sits on C drive my os Win7 sits on D drive.

Answer:Adm permission needed to delete 2nd W7 copy?

This is where the confusion always starts. ANY version of windows will consider the partition that IT is on to be Drive C. This means that when you are in Windows you are trying to delete the current running operating system, which it wisely will NOT allow. Look carefully at your partitions and write down the exact SIZE of these partitions and use THIS as the criteria for deciding which partition to delete. In other words, If the original version of W7 is on a partition that is say 250GB and the added version is on a partition that is say 223GB, then when you go into Disk manager in the first version, the second will show up as 'D' 223GB but if you go into disk manager in the newer version, the original will show up as 'D' 250GB. Please note that after you delete the version of windows you do not want, you will have to go into msconfig and remove it from the boot tab also to prevent the option from showing up on start up. If for any reason you cannot boot back up after removing one of them, put in your install disk and do a repair to fix the boot partition.Then reallocate the space as needed, though if the unallocated space comes before the working partition, you will not be able to add it together with windows disk manager, so make a new partition for other purposes like files or back up, etc.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Just got the desktop described below. Inserted a SD camera card into the slot on my Canon MG6120 printer. Opened the folder containing the pix, marked 95% of them, and hit Delete. Get message that I need administrator permission to delete them. I AM the administrator, so don't know why it's telling me this. I looked up how to change permissions in the Properties, but after clicking Properties, no "Security" tab is there, so I can't change anything.

However, I subsequently inserted the card into the card reader on the PC and deleted the pix -- no error message about not having permission. So my question is, why do I not have permission to delete the files from a reader in MY printer which is connected wirelessly to MY PC, but do have permission when it's plugged directly into the PC?

Incidentally, the computer assigns the drive letter Z: to the SD card. Does that have anything to do with my not having administrator access? I also noticed for the first time that I cannot start the computer in Safe Mode. Do a restart, hold down F8, and I'm presented only with a menu asking what device do I want to boot from. ?????????????

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to read my post and aid me in my little issue I have here.

There exists a folder in one of my hard drives that I cannot delete.

I played around with the permission settings and gave all users "full control" to no avail. It still insists I do not have permission to delete it.
After using Unlocker, I found out that the folder is tied to 'scvhost.exe.' Aparently that file is what created this indestructible directory on my drive. The directory itself is only 800 bytes and seems to serve no purpose. Further, I cannot open any of the folders inside of it, but I am sure they are all empty.

I tried everything I could find on Google, yet still can't delete the directory.
Here is an album of screenshots of the directory, its permissions, and the errors: file prob - Album on Imgur

Answer:Cannot delete folder on drive, says I don't have permission (I do)

Post the screenshot again, follow Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

There are many processes that use svchost.exe.

It is possible you need to take ownership for the folder, however let us see the folder first.

To reproduce this problem, turn on the prompt on delete in the Recycle Bin settings (you can also turn it in the group policy, if you want). Then try to create a folder in Program Files, put a file in there, then try to delete this folder. No confirmation will be requested. My question is,how can I force Windows to show the confirmation box?

This happens only, if I choose to delete a folder (or a file) from the menu. If I press Delete, there is a dialog/prompt.

Hello, my admin installed some programs today, and now i have a lot of icons on my desktop. I tried to delete them, but it says you need to confirm this operation. Its just a shortcut, not a program. So why can't i delete it? Is there a way to do it without admin rights? and i cant make it hidden either ... Help?

Answer:Need Admin permission to delete desktop shortcut?

Check where the shortcut is stored. Is it in the Public folder (shared) or the User folder?Public Folder: C:\Users\Public\DesktopUser Folder: C:\Users\(Your Account Name)\DesktoporPublic Folder: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\DesktopUser Folder: C:\Documents and Settings\(Your Account Name)\DesktopPublic folder are visible to everyone's account - you will need Admin permission to delete. User folder are only visible to that user - you should have User permission to delete.If you need admin access and can't ask the Admin (for some unknown reason), Vista is very easy to break into to the admin account or create a duplicate (they are even dumb enough to allow anyone guest access to a hidden admin account if your've got the command prompt enabled). Not sure if I can on here or even should inform you how though. Lots of others might be interested too (even if you did have a good reason). I suggest you just ask the Admin.

Hi,
I'm hoping someone can provide a simple answer to this problem.
I am trying to delete a folder (and all of the files in it) and I am getting the following errors:
1. You'll need to provide administrator permission to delete this folder. (Continue/Skip/Cancel)
2. I select Continue
3. You need permission to perform this action. You require permission from MyPC\Bob to make changes to this folder. (Try Again/Cancel)
The problem is that I am logged in as MyPC\Bob, and Bob is an Administrator account.
So, how exactly do I ask myself for permission ? And how do I give myself permission ?
Bob has 'Full control' of the folder.
Bob is the owner of the folder.
But Bob cannot delete the folder because Bob has to ask Bob for permission..... /boggle.

I'm moving my Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit platform to a new computer. On the old machine, I almost never had to log on as administrator because I could perform any system-altering operation by entering the admin psswrd at the UAC prompt. At the same time, I had total control of the environment in my user account, being able to customize my desktop and start menu at will. I can't remember what I did originally on the old machine to set all that up, but I'm having problems on the new one. I managed to enable customizing my start menu (creating new folders, etc.) by making sure that any instance of "start menu" I could find on the computer was shared, but while I can delete icons from my desktop that I created, I am unable to delete any that have been put there by program installations without a UAC prompt. Right-clicking the Public folder and choosing "share with" produces only the "advanced sharing settings" dialogue and editing those settings seems to do nothing at all. Also, I don't see any relevant entries in Group Policy Editor. I need read/write privileges for that folder! I've always appreciated the security provided by UAC, but this is not a security issue. Anybody have a solution?message edited by krh

Answer:Can't delete desktop icons without admin permission

For anyone interested, it turns out that, in my case at least, the solution was "don't use Windows Easy Transfer". I had done a lot of customizing of my old platform, involving a lot of editing of permissions. WET doesn't transfer permissions and only part of those customizations, in such a way that I think I wound up with sort of a corrupted mess. Since it doesn't transfer permissions and you need to reinstall all your programs anyway, I don't think there's much point in using it. It's not difficult to re-establish accounts manually and desktop preferences by exporting theme packs. Once I started customizing my third attempt at a fresh install, this time without WET, I had no problem at all setting up the proper permissions. Folder editing now works as it should.

As I understand it, most folks won't be putting files in Program Files or Program Files (x86) as those Folders are for installed programs which may explain what you are seeing. Installed programs actually need to be Uninstalled rather than just deleted by using the program's uninstall routine or Control Panel, Programs and Features.

So the other day I had to fix a family members computer, its PSU had stoped workin, so I changed it to a PATA compatible PSU, from a SATA one, and changed our HDDs, expect my primary one that had W7 installed on it. And installed W7 on my secondary one, and put it in his computer. I was not able to format the disk I stole from him, so I gave the permission from trusted installed to me, but now I can't format it because "it's being used" although I cna't find anything on it that would be able to be used, and no windows open explorering it. So I tried deleting the folders in it manually, but I didn't have permission from Kiipas_computer/Kiipa (which is me) who I had given permission to.

And really don't know what this thing wants. It says the author is System. How can I stop this task or turn it off? It won't let me disable it or anything.

I've tried doing searches on what this task is, but I really can't find much info at all. What is it? I'm paranoid about it running because I recently had a nasty virus on my system. I know this dll is a part of Vista, but I really don't want this task running if it's not a needed process.

When I tried to install the program with the default settings, it sets the installation folder to my AppData folder, but when I try that I get an error saying "You don't have sufficient disk space to install to this location". I have 36GB of free space on my 250GB SSD. Whatever...

I created the folder Mozilla Thunderbird in there but when I tried installing it there I got an error saying "You don't have access to write to the installation directory." HUH??

I also tried installing to C:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird and even C:\My Programs\Mozilla Thunderbird. All attempts resulted in the write access error.

One thingthats just killing me with W7 is the rights issues. I supposedly have full admin rights and this is my home PC and the only other account is guest. I have run that reg file that gives you the take control option on the right click menu. But there is just no end to prompts telling me i can't do this or that or shouldn't etc etc. All sorts of things that are just driving me crazy. Is there a way to end it once and for all and give me total rights to every thing that is possible ?

Hi, I have read through all instructions on how to grant myself permission and I am still having problems. I have downloaded totalcommand, installed take ownership, alternative filemanager to delete files using a gui. I have followed these instructions but come to a problem at stage 2, 5 as this part shows that I am already the owner. It doesn't say trustedinstaller is the owner?? it wont allow me to even change owners anyways and when I click take owner ship nothing happens either?? What can I do??

Give Permission to the folder/drive that you are facing the issue with.

In Windows Explorer, right-click the file or folder you want to work with. From the pop-up menu, select Properties, and then in the Properties dialog box click the Security tab.
In the Name list box, select the user, contact, computer, or group whose permissions you want to view. If the permissions are dimmed, it means the permissions are inherited from a parent object.
Turn off UAC (User Account Control)

Before you can do anything, you must turn off the UAC, or you will be locked out of the following steps.

1) Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> User Accounts
2) Click "Change User Account Control Settings"
3) Move slider all the way down to "Never Notify"
4) Reboot

2) Take Ownership

Yes take ownership. Even though you are logged on as an Administrator, you can't change files that don't belong to you. The Program Files folder is set to the Trusted Installer group ... Read more

Hi,

I create a Public Folder (Task Items) in Outlook 2003 and then attach one Excel Sheet in it.

I am the OWNER of the folder.

If I just click on the attachment and press the DEL button then the file gets DELETED.

I don't want that to happen. I want to BLOCK my rights of DELETING THE attachment.

How should I go about it?

Regards,

Yps
 

Answer:Outlook 2003 - Public Folders - Block DELETE Permission

If you are indeed the owner of this folder then you should be able to right-click on i and go to permissions. From here you can give users certain rights and permissions. I would give the users reviewer rights if you just want them to read the e-mails and attached items as well.

I just bought a used tower with W7 installed.
A few days ago, I was running a scan, and kept getting popups saying the scanner needed to open a file or launch an application. This sounded suspicious to me, so I unchecked the box to make my decision permanent, then denied them all. There were hundreds of them.
Now when I run any kind of scan, it can't scan these items, telling me they are "locked." But I denied them only temporarily.
I'm not used to this OS. How do I go about removing all those denied permissions? I can only find a way to do it one at a time, and only when I know the name of the file. I don't know their names, or where to find them on my system.
Is there some way to remove those denied permissions, without having to use an older restore point? I'd have to reinstall half of my applications if I did that, I'm sure.

I had a computer die and I have the hard drive from it hooked into this computer.

Tried to copy all the files I wanted to keep off it so's I can format it and use for something else.

The (win10) copy prog keeps stopping and telling me I need admin permissions.

When I look at the permissions on the files they all refer back to the old computer.

This doesn't happen to all files so I don't really know what's going on.

Nor how to fix it.

Anyone know?

Found after doing an IObit UNINSTALLER of Avira Antivirus (free version) while it showed, successful completion and after reboot and clean up, similar Avira alerts occurred (per my earlier post re Advanced System Care problem) showing items being quarantined as before.

So I searched and found an Avira folder with files under Programs.

I wasn't allowed to delete the folder and files because it appears I needed System or Administrator permission to do so.

A search for such a procedure left me feeling nervous, so is there a safe and simple stepped way for a dummy like me to gain permission needed to delete this Avira folder with files under Programs?

Thanking you in advance

Cheers

Okay, this ones pissing me off. Usually I find a solution to my computer problems on my own or via google, but this one has got me.

I downloaded a MPEG from the interwebs with Firefox. As per usual I saved it ot my desktop, and it downloaded the .mpg and then the info for it, so it could merge them or whatever.

Only it didn't merge them.

Whatever, when it finished, I deleted them. It deleted the data fine, but it left me with a 0kb .mpg. I can not delete it.

When I attempt to, it says I need permission. I of course am the administrator.

I can not move it, rename it, do ANYTHING to it with the same error that I do not have permission.

So I read that you can go into the file and change ownership. This does not work for me either, as people tell me you go into the properties, click on your username, and hit edit. The entire area that shows the computers users is greyed out for me and I can not select my own.

So.. any help? :/ greatly appreciated

Hi, please forgive me if I've posted in the wrong thread.

I took an online prep course which allowed me access to a bunch of tests. I printed a few tests, but I saved the rest to my laptop so that I could print them at a later date. The files are saved as .SWF files and I can't open them!! I downloaded flash player and tried opening it through Internet Explorer, but this message shows up "You have no permission to see this document" in the window.

I would be SO grateful if someone can tell me how to open my files, is it even possible?

We're trying to automate using netdom to join machines to the domain. The only problem we've run into is that the account we created to do this has permissions to add a machine, but cannot remove it. We're having trouble finding where to give it that permission in AD.

Can someone clue me in here?

Before someone starts suggesting sysprep, understand that aside from this small issue we've got our image process down to two steps:

1) Boot from a floppy or USB drive to start Ghost pulling whichever image we need
2) Return after the image is done and enter the computer name in a DOS window

Batch files are great. It renames the PC, reboots it, joins it to the domain, reboots, logs inot the domain, installs antivirus, resets the local admin password, removes the automatic login, cleans up all the batch files, and shuts down. And all we have to do is type the computer name.
 

Answer:Granting user permission to remove machine from domain

Open ADUC, go to View, and select Advanced Features. This will give you the Security tab under the Properties view. Then, bring up the Properties for the OU that holds the computer accounts. Find the account you want to give the permissions to, and click Edit. Then, just look for the "Delete Computer Objects" entry.

As title.

I've begun to use TeraCopy, which is much better than the stupid Win7 copy handler. There's just one problem:

When TeraCopy moves a file from a user-owned folder to a public folder, it retains folder's user-level permissions. I can manually give access to Everyone for this folder, but it is very annoying.

So, I'm looking for a way to easily remove a folder's own permission settings and make it use only inherited permissions.

TIA

I run into this problem often. When working with Photoshop files (PSD in the most recent case), sometimes when I make a change and then try to save the changes I come up with this error dialog. My work flow is always the same - I am the computer's administrator.
I am the only person with access to this computer. There are no other users on this computer. This computer is not tied to any server or network. My files are generated from my own work obtained from my camera. I normally save changes to the file several times
so I won't lose my work. I can save the file using a different name, but then I cannot delete the original file unless I reboot the computer and open it up again. Please explain why this randomly reoccurs.

Answer:File Access Denied - You require permission from the computer's administrator to make changes to this file

Hi dmiddleton123,
"When working with Photoshop files (PSD in the most recent case), sometimes when I make a change and then try to save the changes I come up with this error dialog. "
When did the issue start to occur ?The issue only occur with the specific software ?Have you tried to change another location to saved file or reopen the software (end the software process from the task manager)to have a check ?
This issue is a little weired,please take the following steps to have a check .
1.Run "sfc /scannow" to check the health of the system files .
2.Perform a full scan with an antivirus software .
3.Perform a clean boot to verify whether there is a third party conflict here.

If the issue only occurred with the specific software ,it is also recommended to ask for help from the software developer .
