Hi Monkey! Are you dual-booting Windows (8 or 10) with your Ubuntu? If so, your trouble may be that Windows goes into "hibernation" instead of shutting down... so basically Windows is still running! Linux respects this situation and refuses to work with files in that partition so that it doesn't corrupt anything.

A simple test is to restart Windows (not shut down) and go directly into Ubuntu. A Windows restart does not enable hibernation. So then try to copy/paste files from Ubuntu and see if it works now.

Hibernation (and Fast Boot) can be disabled permanently if this is the problem, and if you want to take this step. This article describes more about this problem and other ways to temporarily disable hibernation too.

Cheers
