Yes, please can anyone give a hand? I thought it was because the folder was marked "Read-only" but changing that did not seem to help.

A belated reply, but hopefully it'll be useful to anyone who runs into the same problem in the future: on Windows, at least, running the game as an administrator allows it to save/load correctly.
