That looks like a folder permission.  I believe you will want to look at the IIS permission to allow the service to make changes to the existing folder.

Can you post the error you are receiving?  That will be more helpful than the folder permissions.

Permalink structure updated. Remove write access on web.config file now!

Download failed. Destination directory for file streaming does not exist or is not writable.
