Then I thought, you don't suppose some blocks in the project folder have got read only do ya?

That's not how SSDs work. In order to prevent a single block being "pounded upon" too much (think of the FAT table), they use wear leveling. This means that a particular LBA doesn't map to a particular physical block.

Some physical blocks on the SSD are reserved as "spares", to handle the case of blocks that have gone read-only. This is handled transparently by the SSD's firmware. The SSD will typically go read-only only when all the spare blocks have been used.

Your description shows that this was not the case. I would look elsewhere for the cause of the error in VS.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
