    File Access Denied

    I get the following message when I try to 'save, 'save as' or 'paste':

    File Access Denied

    You require permission from Unix User\nobody to make changes to this file.

    I have no idea was to what causes this nor have I made any security changes. Any ideas?

    What type of device are you trying to save to? USB? NAS?

    Simply trying to paste a file into an app in my C drive in the Program Files folder.

    More detailed information would be helpful...

    Are you pasting an entire file, or parts of a file?

    What kind of file?

    What app are you pasting into?

    Did it work before Windows 10?

    You should not paste anything into Program Files, it's a protected location.
    More info please.

    cheers, Paul
