I have an Arduino Micro that has a working sketch on which I made some changes.
However, for some reason I cannot upload the sketch.
The IDE says the port is busy. I have searched on this issue and found a lot of similar problems but unfortunately few real solutions.
The following error message is shown:
Sketch uses 8670 bytes (30%) of program storage space. Maximum is 28672 bytes. Global variables use 437 bytes (17%) of dynamic memory, leaving 2123 bytes for local variables. Maximum is 2560 bytes.

I am running:
OS: Windows 10 Pro, Version 2004, OS Build 19041.630, Windows Feature experience pack 120.2212.31.0
Board: Arduino Micro
I have already tried the following:
- Restart PC
- Unplug all other USB devices and changed input devices
- Reinstall Arduino IDE
- Reinstalled Driver for COM port Arduino is on
- Changed COM port for Arduino
- Used another USB Cable
- Used multiple different USB ports
I Can get my board info when connected to COM3.
I have attached the com port selection in the IDE and the com port settings in device manager.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am completely lost now.
Thank you in advance.
