Default Tasks Switch to Non-Working Days on Working Calendar

I have an issue where I suddenly started seeing non-working days (Saturday and Sunday) included when using the standard work calendar.

I'm not sure what may have triggered this. Does anyone know what would cause the sudden inclusion of non-working days?

to clarify, do you mean that tasks span across sat and sun, or they are being included as working days? If you could post a sample (change task names, titles etc if you need to) and we can have a look and see if anything jumps out.

Unfortunately I cannot provide a sample.

But yes, for some reason, Saturday and Sunday are being included as start and finish dates despite using the standard Work Calendar.

I noticed the change after I included a lag on a Finish date to catch the schedule up with current dates. Other times I have simply entered a new date in either the Start or Finish columns.

I also notices that when I deleted a Predecessor for one of the tasks, the Start and Finish dates for the task reverted to a date in 2016. When I checked, this was related to the Project Start date found in "Project Information". I had not updated the start date when I used an older file to create a new one.

Would any of those things affect the use of non working days?

No worries, a sample would help but a lot of the time we cant do that
The items you mention shouldn't make any difference- project start date wont change calendars, no matter what your start date is, nor should lag as this wil use working days, and not create a new data set.
Only thing I can think of is that somewhere the standard calendar has become a 7 day calendar (or some other user created one). you said you used an older file to create a new one, its possible something happened there and things went wonky.
If you haven't already, double check you calendars. Insert a new column in the programme temporarily and use "task calendar" to see what each task is usung. I suspect that all tasks are using the same calendar. If its not standard, you can change them over and hopefully that should cure it. If not, check the calendar in use to see what days is uses- if there is anything in sat or sun, then delete it, and that should get you back to a 5 day week.
If that doesnt work, I'll see what else we can come up with
