I have an existing application residing on the live server.

I'd like to copy the whole folder into my machine so i can do some enhancement without touching the live environment.  The application is using ASPNETDB for logins and roles, which resides in the AppData folder.

When i copy the whole folder into my local machine and try to open the web management tool, it gives me an error saying it could not connect to the provider db.

Is there a security setting on the folder i need to set or something?

Please help.  Thanks!
