Files in folder missing, replaced with .dead file


After the update to 1.32.0, I attempted to open one of my files of code and was greeted with a message along the lines of “You do not have permission to open this file” I then went into C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\atom\app-1.30.0 and the folder that my code was in was missing, the only thing there was .dead.

Win10 64bit
