Illustrator 2020 is only saving temp files on Windows 10

I'm currently working with Adobe Illustrator 2020 and have been working on a few projects where when I save over my .ai file, to save any changes, the file instead saves a .temp file. This is pretty unusual and frustrating since the save process finishes and I think my edits are good but then exit out and realize they have not saved over. It had previously worked but for some reason stopped. Any advice is much appreciated, thank you.

If your antivirus is AVAST, add the Adobe Applications to the allowed applications.
I tried unchecking the save in background and stuff but nothing seemed to work, until I added the Illustrator to the allowed applications...

I found that shortening my file/folder names, including as many enclosing folders as possible, seemed to fix this issue right away. Use a Mac and Windows but this particular issue only popped up in Windows 10.
