IIS7 folder rights when uploading files

IIS7 seems to create a new Application Pool for each web site. The app pool uses the "NetworkService" identity by default (right click on the application pool and select Advanced Settings to see the details). You therefore need to allow "Network Service" (Note space) to have write permission to any folders where you want to save uploaded files into when using Anonymous or Forms authentication.
