RX10 iv - new behavior when uploading to computer

I've had this camera a few weeks. For the first several, I was able to upload photos to my Windows 10 computer with this process:

  • Connect the camera to the computer with a USB cable
  • Turn the camera on
  • Open File Explorer on the computer and find the camera
  • Open the \DCIM\ folder
  • Select all the files / photos, select Cut, and paste them to a folder on my desktop.
  • The photos would move and the DCIM folder would be empty.

Now I suddenly have a DSC-RX10M4 folder instead of DCIM. It has a series of folders, each named with the dates of when their contents were photographed. I can copy the photos to my hard drive but I cannot cut them or delete the files or folders, so they're still on the memory card.

Any guesses what I may have done and how I can undo it?


EDIT - another piece of data - the files I uploaded this evening come up as 'Read Only'.  Previously they were not.
