Windows Service Default User

I have a service that runs daily and calculates a bunch of data then outputs it to a csv.  I am trying to output that csv to a network location, but I don't know what user the service runs as, therefore I can't set up permissions on the network location.

My question: What user do I have to grant access to read/write in that location?  Or how do I find that information.

This probably runs as a task.  Go to Control Panel \ Scheduled Tasks and find the one that runs your process.  Double-click the task and toward the bottom it will say Run as.  This is your user.

If it runs as a service go to Administrative Tools, Services and find the service.  It will list the "Log On As."

It is an actual service that I wrote.  So I can confirm that it is not a scheduled task.

A service will use either "Local system account" or "This account" for credentials.  Which is it using?
