I looked at some of the other comments on this subject but can't find one that works.

 

I'm running Windows 10 which is now ver 1709.  When I edit a HTML file in any folder under the Documents folder on the C: drive and ONLY on the C: drive, I get  "Access to (file name) was denied" when using Dreamweaver or I get "An error occurred while attempting to write the file" using Microsoft Expression Web 4..   If I save this file to the Download folder or any other folder it works perfect.  I can then copy or move the file to the Documents folder.  BUT, same thing happens if I try to edit it again.

 

I had this problem before and it seems the only way I fixed it was to reinstall Windows.  There has to be a better way ??

You will need to launch the program you use to edit HTML file as a administrator.

Nope, that doesn't work, tried it before.  If it was to work, why would I need to do it for files in the documents folder and not other folders?

I just found another problem with editing files in the Documents folder.  I open a  .mp4 file with VLC to convert it to an .mp3 file.  If I tell it to save it to a folder under the Douments folder, it says  "(file name) File not found.  Check the file name and try again".   WHAT, it's a new file with a new name, of course it can't find it.    I have no problem saving it to lets say, the Download folder which is NOT under the Documents folder.

thanks for the try but it didn't seem to make any difference that I can see so far, trying both html editor and audio converter.

You can take ownership and grant yourself a full permission to folder where these files stored if that won't work grant yourself a full permission to files.  I have attached a batch script execute the batch script to add take ownership context menu option for folders and files. You will need to press Shift key and right click a folder to get the  take ownership context menu option.

That didn't work either, doing either the Documents folder or a specific file.  I know it has to do with permissions, just can't seem to find the correct thing to do.

Okay, I fixed it by doing a restore from a saved restore point about a month ago.   I think what happens is after Windows does an update (I now have 1709) I change some settings and get things screwed up. 

 

I will have to be careful what settings I change and test each time.

 

Thanks for your help.
