Permissions. Cannot Save as or Back Up too

A backup could not be created at blah

The project could not be copied to the specified location. Please check that you have enough free disk space and the correct permissions.

I do and I do.

If I want to copy in Mac Finder

The Finder can’t complete the operation because some data in “Settings” can’t be read or written.
(Error code -36)

I’m the only admin on the machine, I wrote every word, made every file. Why is it messing me about? Any ideas, cheers

Specifically, what is the full path of “blah” where you are configured to send the backups to? Just to check, what does Finder/Get Info say about that location?

Also, did you turn off all disk optimisations (Apple) and online-only (Dropbox) yet and are either of these locations “blah”?

This looks like a case of anti-virus misbehavior to me.
