        I enabled ransomware protection today and now I can’t save LibreOffice files. I can save Firefox stuff only by chosing to save as HTML rather than PDF. I don’t know about any other file types or programs yet.

        All my personal stuff is in the C:\Data folder, with documents saved to C:\Data\My Documents.  To save stuff I was working on I had to disable Ransomware.


        I’m running Windows 10 version 1909 and haven’t been offered the update, possibly because this computer is more than 5 years old.
