But it still worked afterwards.

If you want to create a new user profile - but the issue might start happening again since we don't know the app that is causing this.

You can try the read-only file attribute.

Or we can try and find the offending app using process monitor and maybe a script.

Another duff link and when I copy/replace the backup in, it immediately becomes duff. When I copy and keep both files, I get one duff link and the (2) version works.

Two minutes later both of them work fine!!
