OK, here is the situation, I recently Set up and learned how to use MO2 and quick cleaning. however the mods that i try to clean wont save. i get the error "Can not rename -common/Skyrim SE/Data/MOD" to common/Skyrim/Data/SSEEdit/MOD backup" then i get "please check the files in your data path"
so i went searching, watched a few YT videos on how to, checked to make sure i had everything installed correctly. check what else could keep it from changing, then i looked into my computer and read a few help post there. then i added the administrative privileges to SKSE, SKYRIM, LOOT, MO2, SSEEdit then got rid of the read only tab on the skyrim folder (more accurately the contents in the folder) and. . . . . i reached a dead end. the files are in the right location as far as i'm aware. and I've been at this for hours now. i know i'm missing something but i'm not experienced enough to narrow it down from here. I would appreciate the help.
the OP is a windows 10 which I learned, is a pain the hard way.
