Access to the path "c:\inetpub\wwwroot\XmlDataGrid\XML_1.xml" is denied.

Hi, I am keep getting this error message. The problem is that i dont have enough permission to write to the project folder. I tried many different ways to set up the permission but could not figure it out. I looked IIS and checked  the 'write' box but it didnt help . I also tried creating  a new XML file from Visual Studio. Here is a copy of the rest of the message.
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path "c:\inetpub\wwwroot\XmlDataGrid\XML_1.xml" is denied.

ASP.NET is not authorized to access the requested resource. Consider granting access rights to the resource to the ASP.NET request identity. ASP.NET has a base process identity (typically {MACHINE}\ASPNET on IIS 5 or Network Service on IIS 6) that is used if the application is not impersonating. If the application is impersonating via <identity impersonate="true"/>, the identity will be the anonymous user (typically IUSR_MACHINENAME) or the authenticated request user.

To grant ASP.NET write access to a file, right-click the file in Explorer, choose "Properties" and select the Security tab. Click "Add" to add the appropriate user or group. Highlight the ASP.NET account, and check the boxes for the desired access.

If you are running IIS6, you will also have to configure the permission in Applicaiton Pools section
Restart the IIS
Restart your machine
Try putting the XML files to a different folder, outside of c:\inetpub\wwwroot and see what will happen.

HTH, Nauman.

You should do as suggested: set proper NTFS permission for the project directory, it's not enough to do it in IIS.
