You will need write or modify permission to the Data folder for the account that is running your application pool.

There is nothing wrong with your Application pool. In your website, for this "Data" folder, give write / modify permission to IIS User.

If you are checking in VS2010, then give either full control permission to this folder for user
logged in.
