Last night there was an update for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 and my friend and I downloaded the update at the same time; but my PC did something that his didn’t. Getting into the game was normal and there was no problems. but I found out I couldn’t access my liveries and enhancement mod that I added/used in the game that were made by the community. My friend also has these mods but he was able to access them after the update so I was wondering what happened, windows creates a ‘WpSystem’ folder to put windows store games in; and almost every folder has been encrypted (my Friends folders did not get encrypted but he uses the steam version so IDK if that made the difference). I checked all my other folders and other drives and only the windows store files in
WpSystem are encrypted.
I can go from the
Local folder which leads to the first folder that is encrypted, the
After this everything is encrypted and I believe that’s why I cant access them in game.
I can delete and move encrypted files around the drive they’re in (including non windows files like other game launcher files in the same drive) but I cannot move them out of the drive like for instance to a folder on my desktop, otherwise it gives me this message:
Looking at security and permissions this is what it says; though I’m missing special permissions which I dont know if that is supposed to be checked off.
Trying to remove the encryption on anything has been unsuccessful and results in this message:
If anyone has any recommendations or knowledge on why Windows did this to me and not my friend, and/or a way to remove the encryption then that would be most appreciated. However the game still works without the mods so its a shame to lose something others can do but im not totally locked out of the game so its not a total loss if this doesn’t get solved.
