ASP .NET Issue

This morning I was trying to create a short cut of a directory that contains .NET code and being severed by IIS. However, I accidentally moved the directory to the desktop. When I moved it back users were seeing: "Failed to start monitoring directory changes"

I worked with one of my co-workers into finding the problem. We restarted IIS, that didn't work, we deleted the entire directory and reloaded the SVN version via TortoiseSVN but that didn't work. We finally found the solution on Microsofts Help and Support site. The problem was the directory lost a permission that it needed.

I hope this helps someone else who might encounter the same problem!
