Error "File not found error" on STORE Command

I have a document that used to work flawlessly on Windows 7 with QV 12.30.20 (November 2018), where a bunch of data is read, filtered and outputted to a csv file using a STORE command.

The same document is not reloading on Windows 10 using the same QV version. It halts on the store command with a wierd "File not found message" with this additonal info :

Cannot open file: '<filename>'
System error: Create directory C failed: boost::filesystem::create_directory: Cannot create a file when that file already exists

The same code works if I specificy a folder as an output that is not an OneDrive folder. Any hints of why this is happening? I need this output to be in a OneDrive folder.

Its not an Qlikview issue I feel ,  after the  windows upgrade your setting are not allowing to overwrite the files with same name because of which your script is failing. Check with your windows teams once and is the issue still persist , help us with the complete log file

Even when I specify a new filename (meaning it will not overwrite an existing one, I still get the same error) :

I agree with the prior poster, given this worked in Windows 7, it would appear to be either a group security policy of some sort impacting Windows 10 in your environment, or something that Windows 10 is doing differently in relation to One Drive share etc.  Either way, I would recommend discussing this with the folks in charge of the business One Drive area to see if they can help troubleshoot things.  If you get further info that does point to something we are doing, I would open a support case at that point, so we can then try to replicate the issue and let R&D know if we are able to see the problem as well.
