BulletProof Security Plugin - no htaccess file present

This is a repost with the correct Title.

 

When I log-in to my dashboard I get this error message from the BPS security plugin:

An htaccess file was not found in your wp-admin folder

I used to have shared hosting with the guy who created my website and I transferred my hosting from Hostgator to GoDaddy back in September 2016. Not sure if this is relevant. If I click on the 'Activate' wp-admin button it just returns the same error message.

Any ideas where to start looking?
