I have the same problem. Afraid of loosing several open files. Version: (x64) OS=Win 8.0 64bit Problem is not Windows Permissions. Using Task manager CTRL+ALT+DEL force close LibreOffice and restart. For me all files recovered. Then able to save anywhere usual without reboot of OS or changing permissions.

This is probably a Windows Permissions problem. Right-click the containing folder, select Properties and check ownership. Change ownership to current user, with "apply to sub-items" checked.

New files I create can be saved.
