Folder "does not exist on this server," But it does!

I am running 64-bit SQLExpress 2008R2, on 64-bit Windows 7 Professional.

ExpressMaint gives me the following error:
Msg 50000, Level 16, State 1, Procedure expressmaint, Line 157
The folder C:\CloudSync\Google Drive\DatabaseTxfer\OfficeBackup\ does not exist on this server
The folder exists. I can paste the folder path from the error message into Windows' Run box, and the folder opens.

SQLExpress service is running under the "Network Service" account. This account has "Full Control" access to the folder.

What might I be missing?

Never mind.

I discovered that the permissions for the Network Service account were being set on the "C:\CloudSync\" folder, but not being inherited by the child folders. Even with multiple attempts.

Yes, I have full admin rights to the machine.

When I set the permissions on the "C:\CloudSync\Google Drive\" folder, the permissions inherited all the way down.

Now ExpressMaint is working as expected.
