here's my troubleshoot report from arma 3

Event Timeline

it seems that game has trouble read from your profile folder on C drive in documents folder due some restriction.
Could you please try?

  1. Create folder named test on another drive than C drive
  2. Start Arma 3 Launcher
  3. Go to Parameters>All Parameters>Advanced>Profile folder
  4. Tick Profile folder and select folder test on your drive which you have created already
  5. Click on Play button in Launcher and game should boot into main menu in default settings
  6. Quit game
  7. Copy files from C:\Users\mehdi\OneDrive\Documents\Arma 3 into YOUR DRIVE:\test\Users\NAMEOFYOURGAMEPROFILE\
  8. Game should start with your settings and savegames if you click on Play in Launcher

Is there a way to do this without having another drive? I only have one drive and I have the same issue
