May I ask why do you have it set to t?  The default is nil, and for a
good reason.

Thanks, but that's not what I asked.  I asked you to create a local
file (which I call "SOME-FILE" below, replace that with the actual
name of the file), and then type this inside Emacs:

  M-: (set-file-acl "SOME-FILE" 

(This is one long line.)  Then tell me if this succeeded or signaled
an error.

If the above succeeds for an arbitrary file, then please try the same
for a file under the c:/Users/username/HOME/.emacs.d/ directory, maybe
the problem is with the permissions of that directory.

The "Operation not permitted" error seems to indicate that your user
is unable to acquire the privileges needed for setting the DACL of a
file on your local disk.  Or it could mean some other problem.  The
above test might give a hint about the reason for the failure.

I don't think this is related to the networked drive, because the
failure happens when Emacs tries to set the DACL of the backup file,
which is stored on your local disk drive.
