- Click Security tab in the folder Properties window that opens, and click Edit button.
- Click Add in the Permissions window that opens next.
- Type "Network" in the Select Users or Groups window and click Check Names.
- Select NETWORK SERVICE in the Name list and click OK.
- Click OK in the Select Users or Groups window.
- Make sure that the NETWORK SERVICE user is selected in the Group or user names list of the folder Permissions window, and check the checkbox for Write permission in the Permissions list near the bottom of the window if it is unchecked. Click OK. Click OK again.
