Quicken Backup blocked by Win10 Controlled Folder Access
Just started having trouble today using Quicken Backup (2019 subscription R18.15 build 184.108.40.206) running Win 10 Home (v1809 update 2/3/19 build 17763.378). The problems disappears when I turn off "Controlled Folder Access" feature in Windows Security. (Not sure why this just started when I have used this security feature now for several weeks without problems and no known new updates in the last few days.) This feature allows one to add the address of applications that it blocks and my question is what quicken applications should i should add to circumvent this block. This feature seems to suggest it will tell you which app it blocked to ease this process but I don't receive any notification of the blocked application but it clearly is the source of the problem since turning off the feature resolves the problem. I could just turn this feature off permanently or when needed but I am hoping someone has a workaround so that I can resume my frequent backups and retain the additional purported ransomware protection of this Windows security feature.
So far I have added the following apps with their locations to the Controlled Folder Access app and none have allowed me to circumvent the apparent bock that occurs:
in C:\Program Files (x86)\Quicken
Thanks for considering.
