Installed QGIS 3.0 (w/Python 3.6.5) to replace v2.X. Started a new project - imported shapefiles and everything looks good.
Problem: Click "Create New Shapefile Layer" and I get the pulldown menu (file name, geomeotry type, etc.) Fill everything out and click "ok" I get this:
Layer creation failed. Please check message log for further information.
Message log says this:
That's it. Warning is blank. Under the OGR tab I've got:
2018-04-13T09:04:34 WARNING Creation of OGR data source SG sites.shp failed: Failed to create file SG sites.shp: Permission denied.
Why is my permission being denied. Tried a full reinstall but results are the same.
