Okay. I've recently noticed that I have more and more problems with Write permissions. Some software is just not able to save things. 

Some time ago I had a locked tmp folder and fixed it somehow. 
Recently I had a game that couldn't save into the documents folder and I was able to fix it by relocating the documents folder. (With the Properties-Location function on the documents folder)

 

Now I have the trouble also on my desktop. Some software simply can't write in some folders on my computer. Does anybody know what's going on? I have no clue how to fix this permanently.

 

 

EDIT

 

Oh freaking nevermind that. Of course I found out what it was a second after posting this. Stupid antivirus being a jerk.

Well. You should write a mail to bitdefender then. That's what I used until an hour ago. :P

Ransomware protection in Bitdefender can prevent writes if it is suspicious of the validity of a programs behavior, e.g.:

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/40388495/windows-10-and-netbeans-no-write-permissions/41734179

and may just need the program added to the trusted list.

False positives can be frustrating, but there would be a lot of folk hit by ransomware that would have been glad to see write permission denied.

I don't mind false positives. But I do mind if it doesn't notify me. Anyways. Bitdefender was thrown out. It never told me if it did something which I always hated but that was too much for me now.

Thanks for making this thread. I was getting ready to reinstall my OS because I didn't understand why my games couldn't write their save data to my Documents folder, thus ruining the games. BitDefender's "Safe File" was blocking them by default without my permission it seems.

Bitdefender does a lot without permission. or at least without telling you.
