I am trying to do a full crawl against a file share \\server\groups\Region Policies, the crawl is failing stating that is does not have permissions to the folder, I click the link on the error and it opens up the directory. this is with my spadmin account, I have logged into a desktop with my  spcrawl account which has full read rights to the share, it can navigate the share no problem and I have verified that the spcrawl account is my default content access account.

What am I missing?
