Unblocking Bloom from Windows Controlled Folder Access

We don’t know what causes that, but this fix has sometimes been helpful:

  1. Locate your Bloom folder. Normally this folder is Documents/Bloom.
  2. Right click on the folder and choose “Properties”.
  3. Click on the “Security” tab.
  4. Click Edit.
  5. Click Add.
  6. Type everyone.
  7. Click OK.
  8. Next to “Full Control”, tick the box next in the “Allow” column.
  9. Click OK.
  10. Click OK.
