NTFS or Share permissions?
Try logging off and log back in (if the permissions are set correctly) and then try to save.

Where are you trying to save the template?  Folders like "Program Files" are off-limits and you cannot normally save there. Perhaps keep the template somewhere else where you can save it.

every time i have a major win 10 update, all my network sharing resets to:
you do not have permission to save in this location

contact your administrator to obtain permission

apart from removing the share (advanced or otherwise) and resetting the share, i have not been able to resolve this problem...

My network sharing stays intact at each major Windows 10 upgrade.

I use standard network sharing (Map Network drive or NET USE)
