  By the way, I'm Windows XP - IIS v5.1

 aspSmartUpload.File (0x80040460)
 Unable to save file (Error 1120)

  I need your help asap. Im very much appreciated all your efforts. Thanks

Don't use the permissions wizard.  Just set the permissions yourself.
The IUSR account needs NTFS write rights.  You do that at the file system level using Windows Explorer.

Two things:

(*) From IIS, for the Virtual Directory and only for the folder where ASPUpload saves (for security reasons, restrict only in this folder), Right Click properties and select Write Also.  For security reasons, ensure that EXECUTE is not enabled in this folder.

(*) Windows Explorer -> Navigate to the folder, Select IUSR_<machinename> and IWAM_<machinename> and enable Write Permission for these accounts in Security tab.

Now you can upload.

Did this help you?

Open Windows Explorer and go to the folder you need to set permissions on, right click on the folder name, choose properties, select the security tab and make sure the IUSR_computername account has modify rights.
