I am running Cubase Pro 9 v9.0.1, on a Windows 10 version 1607 64 bit PC.
Overnight I have encountered the following problem which I have never seen before and which, as far as I am aware, I have done nothing to cause.
Whenever I try to create a new project in a new folder, Cubase gives me the error message “The directory you specified is read only! Please make a new selection!”.
My Cubase projects are contained in the folder c:\Users<my name>\Music. Using Windows Explorer, I can see in the Properties of the Music folder that there is a black rectangle in the Read-only attribute. I have tried removing that and applying the change to “this folder, subfolders and files”, but the change does not seem to endure (the black rectangle is back next time I check), and when I relaunch Cubase the problem remains.
Any help please on the cause of this, and how to cure it?
