How do you give an arcgis account access to a folder?

I am trying to register a folder for ArcGIS for Server, but every time I try an do so I get this error: "The ArcGIS Server is not able to connect to the specified directory.  Please ensure the folder exists and has the appropriate permissions for the ArcGIS Server to access it." 


I thought I set all the Sharing and Permission to read/write, but I'm still getting the error.  I know this may be basic, but does anyone know of a step by step instruction that shows how to do this?


I've gone into the folder properties and clicked on the "Advanced Sharing", but most forms end there, and I don't know what to do after that (if this is even what I am suppose to be doing). 


Any help would greatly be appreciated.
