open("AppData/Local/Comms/UnistoreDB/USS.jtx"): Permission denied

Trying to start a coding bootcamp, and one of the prerequisites is to set up a static web page to netlify. I have been trying for a couple of days now and all I get when I try to run the command git add . is a bunch of permission denied alerts.
