So I pretty much tried reinstalling affinity, clearing, reinstalling windows, updating windows, everything... Affinity photos and designer both give me this error when I try to save or export something. 

I'm on windows 10, 16G RAM, 500G SSD (33G free space), Intel 17-8550U CPU, and a GeForce graphics card

Thanks, Walt! That worked perfectly!

for those who can't find it, you can just search up "Controlled Folder Access" on windows and turn it off or give access to affinity, I just turned mine off.

However, Windows must have told you, that they have not written to the protected folder!

You would think so, but evidently if that's happening it's subtle enough that several users have missed it.

I would also think that some action taken by the Affinity application failed (perhaps something to create an empty file in the output folder) but the developers assumed it could not fail and didn't check the return code.
