Why can't I copy paste from temp file in C to documents?

  1. This just started today. I scan a document and it automatically goes into a temp file in C. After renaming it, I copy but when I try to paste into the document folder it will not let me--says the name of the folder "is not responding" I have scanned my computer for malware and all is clear, also all updates are complete. HELP

    And what type of PC and what Operating system might that be? What anti-malware are you running continuously?
    Is it possible to tell whether the error message is referring to the temp location or the document location ?
    Can you browse both locations in Windows explorer?
    Can you save any little notepad document to both locations?
    Can you not set the scanner program to automatically save into documents location directly?

    Most likely of the possibilities (that can be refined when you answer the questions above) is this https://www.techspot.com/community/topics/windows-8-cant-get-into-library-files.188683/
