Access to the path is denied

P: n/a
This is error message I've got. Any suggestion would be appreciated.

Server Error in '/WebDirectory' Application.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----

Access to the path "CreateFolder" is denied.

Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the
current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information
about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path
"CreateFolder" is denied.

ASP.NET is not authorized to access the requested resource. Consider
granting access rights to the resource to the ASP.NET request identity.
ASP.NET has a base process identity (typically {MACHINE}\ASPNET on IIS 5 or
Network Service on IIS 6) that is used if the application is not
impersonating. If the application is impersonating via <identity
impersonate="true"/>, the identity will be the anonymous user (typically
IUSR_MACHINENAME) or the authenticated request user.

To grant ASP.NET write access to a file, right-click the file in Explorer,
choose "Properties" and select the Security tab. Click "Add" to add the
appropriate user or group. Highlight the ASP.NET account, and check the
boxes for the desired access.

Hi,
I think that the error message is itself self explanatory.
What it says is that by default the aspnet_wp.exe process runs under a the
security context of the ASPNet account. This account is not having access
permissions on the file system. So you need to either give access
permissions to the ASPNet account (which I would not recommend) or you need
to make the request run under another users security context.

I hope I understood the question correctly .
