    NOT SOLVED. This issues keeps coming and going. Now, I can't save my files from Win7 to iCloud.
    Some files save, some don't. It's intermittent.

    Anyone help? I setup Paralles Desktop 16 for Mac, and the system is win10. I don't want to use win 10, How can I change win10 to win7?

    You need to create a new virtual machine and install Win7 or copy win7 from another computer.

    I'm seeing the same problem in Win 10 running in Parallels Desktop 16 [Version 16.1.3 (49160)] on macOS Big Sur Version 11.2.3. Parallels Access is authorized for Full Disk Access. It fails on any folder that's stored in iCloud. If I select one of those folders in Windows Explorer, right-click, and choose Properties, it says the folder is Read Only. If I try to clear that and Apply, I get errors. Apparently Parallels Desktop doesn't work nice with files in iCloud - which is where all my useful stuff is located. If I look at folders / files that are on my hard drive, I can manipulate those fully and write to the folder.
