    Watched folders are implemented by a Windows service that normally runs in the Local System account and doesn’t have access to your logon credentials, which could be needed to access the network drive.

    To change the logon of the service, go to the Control Panel and open Services. Select Adobe Active File Monitor V11 and click the Properties button. On the Logon tab, change to “This account” and enter the name of your account (on the computer that runs PSE) and its password.

    Alos, make sure you are using UNC syntax (\\mycomputer\photos) rather than a drive letter to specify the folders to be watched
