Asp.net Upload File ( FileUpload1.SaveAs) "Access to the path denied"

Last Modified: 2016-01-07
Have a page that was working in IIS 6.  Upgraded from IIS 6 to IIS 8.5 and now this doesn't work.  Using .Net V4.0

Uploading file from web #2  to a different web #1. The document goes into a file folder.  Each one has it's own appPool.  (web1, web2)

I understand now the identity is in the application pool.  So I set the appPool on both webs (1 & 2) to NetworkService.  (Thru IIS -> Application Pools -> Right Click -> Advanced Settings -> Identity)

Then on the file folder where the docs are stored gave NetworkService all permissions.  Still have the error.  So then on the file folder I gave permissions to everyone for everything - still have "Access denied"

Any ideas?
