Writing to Folder

I have been using a solution for creating journal entries.  I create the entries, I then export to a text file in a folder that I can grab the data for an upload to the accounting software.  For the last 2+ years, it has worked flawlessly.  I set up a new computer (same versions of Win10 and FileMaker).  Same file structure.  When I tried to write the text file to the folder I get:

 

In the past, I have only gotten this message when the text file name was open on my computer.  There are several texts files I create during the month.  The new overwrites the old.  The journal I am doing now, is a two line entry.  Next week, there will be a couple that are hundreds of lines long; so I really need to resolve. 

 

The Samples folder has read/write permissions.  But, in looking back to my old computer, the permissions were read-only.
