    1. Go to the control panel \ users and confirm that your account is an local admin.
    2. Windows will allow an admin to send to the c drive by default so the next step is to see if there is a antivirus blocking it.
    3. As a work around, you can send the file to a different folder and then restart the system in safe mode and that should now allow you to move it to the c drive without being blocked.
