This could be a permission issue, or Confluence was started as a different user. Another external factor would be anti-virus/firewall blocking the access.
- Ensure the right folder permissions on the Confluence home folder by enabling full read and write access or check for the right user that start up the Confluence server.

It is advisable to have a chat with your system admin to see what could possibly cause this permission issue.
