1. Check the folder permissions on your network share
2. LOCAL SYSTEM is precisely that - the local system. You need to use NETWORK SYSTEM

Okay, so folder share permissions are "Everyone" - "Full Control"

In Security do "Everyone" also have "Modify" or "Full Control"? Try adding NETWORK SYSTEM in the Security tab and give it "Full Control"
