    I've seen a number of similar errors, but none that accurately match my error.

    When publishing pages _ SOMETIMES _ an error is thrown showing permissions errors deleting files that are related to the Search Index. The "SOMETIMES" part is the weird thing. It will work fine for hours and then begin throwing this error. This error is only thrown when publishing changes to existing pages.

    I've painstakingly checked the folder permissions on both the search index, and windows temp folder - both NetworkService and the IIS_IUSRS account have more than adequate permissions to delete this file.

    I'm running on Windows Server 2008 r2 with IIS 7.

    Other similar errors I've seen in the forums have been when trying to delete the .fdt file (which I never actually see in the folder - wondering if this is a hidden file.)

    The only idea I have left is perhaps the server - which has replication running - is in the process of replicating the file when the deletion method is called?

    Any help would be appreciated, banging my head on this one.. and similar forum threads have lead me only to issues that were not related to this.

    I'm going to file a support ticket as well, but thought I'd post this on the Forums for others to see as well in case this error is more common.

    Full stack trace below -

    Access to the path 'C:\inetpub\wwwroot\PGWebsite\App_Data\Search\Site-Search\Index\_2s7.fdt' 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 'C:\inetpub\wwwroot\PGWebsite\App_Data\Search\Site-Search\Index\_2s7.fdt' 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 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 Brian,

    The error says that the account that uses your application pool does not have permissions to delete items from App_Data.

    1. Please check which account runs the application pool of your website and make sure that this account has the proper permissions.
    2. If you move a website to a local server and you do not perform replication do you have the same issue?
