Can no longer write to files in my home Documents
My files in my home Document are no longer writable. I've suspected Dropbox, Bitdefender and Windows Account, but am unable to fix. If I try to write to a file in \Users\me\Documents it says: You'll need to provide administrator permission ... So if I chose 'Continue', it says You need permission to perform this action. You require permission from me-DESKTOP\me to make changes I am logged in to me-DESKTOP as me. I am the Administrator and only user on this box and for years all has been fine, until recently. Another interesting find is that I seem to only have this problem with a compressed folder. I cannot Uncompress it either, 'An error occurred applying attributes to the file: Access is denied". When I open Properties, Security, Advanced I can see that the Owner is me (me-DESKTOP\me) and if I click on the 'Change' button NOTHING happens except the Change button becomes grayed out. If I do the same steps in SAFE mode, I can actually change ownership to me, but when I boot back to regular mode the problem returns. I've disabled my anti virus, uninstalled dropbox but continue to have the issue. I've found that if I copy the files to a new location they become writable. I also have another weird issue where I am regularly being advised by Windows that my Windows Account needs to be updated and opens a dialog asking me to login with an old email address that I no longer have. I have gotten a reset code (on an alternate email address) and updated my account to use a new email address but when I get the notification that my windows account needs to be updated I just repeat - as in, just read this paragraph over and over and over.

cannot gain the lost space after driver update
I updated my NVIDIA display driver. I would loose 1GB of HD space but will gain it back after deleting temporary files via storage under settings. Now, it will not. It happens with the Intel display driver too. Does not happen in previous versions of Windows. Is anyone facing the issue, or just me? I like to know, thanks.
Thank You to Microsoft
Since the outbreak of the CoVid19 state of emergency, I have been working on co-ordinating help to one or two small rural communities. Compared to the family members of some of the contributors on this platform who are healthcare professionals, my contribution is smaller than miniscule - I really mean this. However, over the week-end an urgent message came to me from a person in great need of assistance. I was able to respond to the individual and get the help that was needed. I would have been unable to do this without Microsoft. So I wish to say thank you to Microsoft staff members; you will perhaps never know just how the MS systems helped in this situation. Thank you, thank you, thank you 🤩🤩🤩 I would be appreciative if the Moderator would send this around the pipeline. To all the contributors on this platform and their families - keep well.
