I moved our website from one directory to another on our server.  Now, every time I submit a form that contains an image upload, I get the following error:

Error Diagnostic Information
Error processing CFFILE

Error attempting to save uploaded file to path '...path to website...\images\site_images.' Access is denied. (error 5)

The error occurred while processing an element with a general identifier of (CFFILE), occupying document position (73:4) to (77:39).
 

I have looked around the web and found little help on this.  The directory is set up currently to have Everyone with Full access.

There were no problems under the previous directory path.

Any ideas?

The directory path has been verified and is correct.

I actually solved this for myself.  Anyone know how to retract this question?  The problem was CFFILE or IIS did not like have a "." in the path name (it was in a directory name).  I removed it and it worked!
