I need to move the moodledata folder from its current location to another larger hard drive on the same server (space limitations). I tried this by copying the moodledata folder to its new location changing config.php to reflect this and renaming the old folder to moodledata_old and then restarting IIS. I logged into moodle fine no issues there but when I went to the site files I got this error (the webserver needs write access to this directory/folder - the site administrator needs to fix the file permissions). When I look at the permissions in windows on both directories they are identical, what am I missing, any help greatly appreciated.
I have since puit everything back the way it was and it's all working again.
