I have shapefiles that are stored on my C Drive and can not publish them to arcGIS Server, however, the same files on a Netwotrk drive are getting published. I know its a permission issue somewhere but can anyone provide me some input to where the permissions need to be changed. I have full rights to the folders on my C drive, however, do I need to be an admin to my machine.
Is the folder registered with ArcGIS Server?
