    WD going crazy with permissions

    So it seems that since I booted my laptop this morning, Windows Defender went crazy with permissions, blocking both Firefox and Set Point Device (Mouse) from doing changes to the Desktop folder.

    I also wasn't able at first to copy files from my external HDD to my laptop.

    I'm on the latest Insider Preview build (fast ring).

    Any advice on this?

    Have you enabled Folder Protection? Desktop is part of those protected folders.

    Don't know what happened. After a reboot it went fine.
