    To fix this and enable you to save to the root of the C: drive, you have to disable UAC! 😮

    To disable UAC, you have to do this in the registry. Change the value of EnableLUA to 0. EnableLUA can be found in the following registry location:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
