    Windows 10, Stardew latest Steam version

    When saving after going to bed, the game crashes. Save game filenames are mangled and require fixing before the save shows up in the Load or Co-op screen anymore. Error log is created with an access denied message, but it does not log what path access is denied to.

    Things I've tried:
    • Changing folder permissions of my co-op save folder - no change
    • Taking ownership of the co-op save folder - no change
    • Running steam as admin - Fixes the issue but not a good solution
    • Deleting the save folder and letting Stardew recreate it - Made worse; this caused the issue to occur not only in the co-op save but in a previously working single player save as well
    • Deleting the entire Stardew Valley folder in %AppData%\Roaming\ and letting Stardew recreate it - no change
    • Deleting the entire Stardew Valley folder in %AppData%\Roaming\ and letting Stardew recreate it, having started Steam as admin - no change
    • Reformat and reinstall of windows 10, replacement of save files in appropriate folder - Fixes issue

    Typical error log

    I realize that Windows 10 is a trash fire, but Stardew is the only game I'm seeing this behavior in.

      Some research into this further following the fact that SetRenameInformationFile is what is failing, according to Prodmon:

        Can also now confirm this does not persist after a flatten and reinstall
