I'm trying to transfer files from an older laptop that should go into App Data\Roaming, but I get a popup that I can't write there. I've changed the file attribution to uncheck Read Only for the file and its subsequent files and folders, but still canot write to, or even get to, the Roaming part of the tree.

What am I not doing or doing wrong?



P.S. I've searched this forum and can't find any reference to this.
