Biztalk Server 2010 Receive Location won't Enable

I configured my Receive Location on Biztalk Server 2010 but when I tried to enable it, it remained stubbornly disabled. No error message, it just won't Enable.

In my case it was a FILE receive port and what I had forgotten to do was to make sure the service account the Biztalk Application Host is running under has FULL permissions on the file location.

Remember "Read" is not enough because BizTalk insists on deleting the inbound file. That was it. Simples!

Something else to remember. If you are using a BizTalk group and a local folder, the local folder has to exist on each of the servers in the group for the Receive Location to Enable. That caveat bit me today.
