    Try booting to a command prompt and using the attrib command to set the folders attributes.

    Command Prompt at Boot - Open in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    ATTRIB [+R | -R] [+A | -A ] [+S | -S] [+H | -H] [+I | -I]
    [drive:][path][filename] [/S [/D] [/L]]

    + Sets an attribute.
    - Clears an attribute.
    R Read-only file attribute.
    A Archive file attribute.
    S System file attribute.
    H Hidden file attribute.
    I Not content indexed file attribute.
    X No scrub file attribute.
    V Integrity attribute.
    [drive:][path][filename] Specifies a file or files for attrib to process.
    /S Processes matching files in the current folder and all subfolders.
    /D Processes folders as well.
    /L Work on the attributes of the Symbolic Link versus the target of the Symbolic Link
