SQL Reporting Services Error - rsAccessDeniedToSecureData

We had some kind of update pushed out to our environment last night and our application took a pretty good hit.  Got almost everything cleaned up but this last error is dug in.  On our home page we have a SQL Reporting Services report but instead of producing the report it says:

The Report Server Web Service is unable to access secure information in the report server. Please verify that the WebServiceAccount is specified correctly in the report server config file. (rsAccessDeniedToSecureData) .  I can't figure out for the life of me what got changed and we really need this up.

Thanks in advance,

I tried everything on that page and still no luck.  I looked at the logs and it says the web service account hasn't been specified correctly.  The thing is, if I put the account name in the actual file, the service won't start.  Added to which I think you're supposed to be able to add the account name in the configuration management tool.  Totally stuck here.

Got it, turns out these two accounts needed write access to the ReportServer folder


Thanks SSD, that got me where I needed to be.
