    Control Panel, System and Security, System. Select System Protection from left hand menu, click on Configure. Check that Max Usage is not set to 100%. Normal is around 10GB. If set higher decrease it to 10GB.

    As it appears the file becomes read only while I'm editing it. Any idea why?

    The application wihch is producing the file is not being run as an administrator and therefore will only create a read only file. You need to be logged on with the same user account from which the application was installed. Windows should cough up a UAC box to allow you to run the app as admin even though you might be running it from a different account but some applications might not use that permissions level themselves.

    It is the files generated by Qt. I installed the program from the same user account I'm using right now and it is an administrative account.

    I have no idea what Qt is. Like I say, some applications do not set permissions right. Did you install it as an admin? If not that could be the problem.

    Unfortunately I'm not sure how I installed it. Probably I have to reinstall it.
